The Self-Ruled

Rigid rules are for the fools
who need to be reigned
or else they will run unruly
For only rules can rule
these rebels who do not use
their heart or mind
to know wrong from right

Thinking minds obey the laws
but set their own unsaid rules
Rules, they better not break,
for they know, if broken, it won’t
annoy some ruling authority
but crush and break,  
their very own identity
their inner integrity

 My above poem is in response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Breaking the Law.”

The rules below cited at infographicaday, are worth following, though no penalty for non-followers

      • That’s not what I meant. 😦
        If you have time, search for Break A Law on my blog. I’ve written a whole article on that topic.
        Hope you understand. 🙂


        • Sorry dear! I didn’t mean to offend you 🙂
          Actually somewhere in your ‘About Bloggirl’ you have stated that you have your whole life ahead of you…makes you giddy with anxiety…so I was merely pulling your leg on that.
          I’ll surely read your Break A Law.
