Words of Min(e)d


Never Mind

Never mind
those who doubt or
dislike a thing you do
with the whole of your heart.

Never mind
those who do not
understand the
method of your madness,
or the rattle of your bones,
as they shake
in percussive unison
with a rhythm
only you can hear.

There is nothing
more important
than shining the light
we have to give -
and when we do
just know,
there will always be those
who shrink away.
