Let The People Be - Poem by Vanessa Hughes

There lived a wise old owl
Who said 'Let the people be'
What they wish, What they want,
Let them all be free

To make all their own choices
Without pressure, without guilt
Learning from their own mistakes
is how confidence is built

Let the loved ones in your life
Decide from their own view
The path they choose to walk down
Not the one that pleases you

I listened to this wise old owl
Still make mistakes, but know
The best way for me to be
is advise but then let go

The joy and happiness I have within
Soars, as you fly free
When in turn you learn the same
You'll let your people be
