we need to do
what we don’t believe in
to reach what we do.

we need to compromise
and change our minds
to keep the peace.

and sometimes,
we need to stretch
and ask ourselves why
we disagree.

i put on these pants
knowing i feel conscientious
because i am asking myself
why that would be so.

why is it that
i want to avoid judgment
when i do not judge
anyone else?

and I wear them
and I question
and now I understand.
and now I change.

i stop obeying others
so that i can see
if i’ll obey myself.
