In a current it is easy
to let yourself go with the flow.
You don’t feel ill or slightly queasy
when pushed up or turned down low.
You drift along without a care
with the like-minded easy fellow.
In the mass you even dare
to utter words extremely shallow.
But the downside of such drift
is the loss of your own fights
because you follow every shift
and disregard singular rights.
Standing up means standing out,
and you see the others pass,
but learning what things are about
is better than drown in the mass.
