I will not do, I will not be, and I will say,
I cannot do, I cannot be, and I cannot say,
I have never done, I have never been, and I have never said.
Three stages of reminders and assurance,
You have learned from your observance,
And you will never become what you saw,
And if you try to hard, then you will surely fall.
I will not do what he did, so I will do this this instead,
I will not be like her, so I will be like this instead,
I will not say what they said, so I will say this instead,
But your mistake is not realizing that the faster you run from one extreme,
The closer you are to the other.
I cannot do what he did because I am not like that,
I cannot be what she is because I am not like that,
I cannot say what she says because I am not like,
But when you say ‘cannot’ you do not claim the logic of freewill,
Instead you blame the limitations on your lack of mimicry.
I have never done, but in shadows you always did,
I have never been, but when nobody looked you always were,
I have never said, but in your mind you always thought,
And all those years you were sure you would never become that image of what you hate,
You just walked a different path that made you the same.
