You Told Me

You told me
Not to be creative,
It doesn't make one rich,
So I shut down
My imagination.

You told me
Not to love,
I would be wasting my time,
So I cut
My heart out.

You told me
Not to think,
I will always be wrong,
So I threw away
My mind.

You told me
Not to be with my friends,
They're not good for you,
So I stopped
Seeing them,
Making them.

I've honoured
Your requests,
I threw away
Almost everything,

Then you told me
Not to dream,
Why dream, you said,
Most definitely a waste of time,
So I walked away
From you.
