Was told to stick to the script

This calligrapher's introverted and nerdy

The role reversal occurred when the gift

With words encouragement lifts

The spirits, here is a glimpse

A solo specimen, wrestling

Destiny manifested life's lessons convinced

The more or less moral is, we all need guidance I give

Insight inside of these syllables, silence isn't so simple

Society's so succeptible, seeking success excessively

Selfies and social messaging, lessons left up to mere memes

Clearly, it's the days of reckoning

Fighting for your rights it seems I might just need a referee

All's fair in love and war no metaphors

Henceforth to move forward we use Force

Reporting through recordings it's more than a calling

When all is said and done there's nothing new that's under the sun

Our sons and daughters rewarded with more than a minor portion

It's important
