Rules!

Rating: 5.0
Rules!
I have a ruler in my hand;
But, the ways of life is always full of rules,
With rulers here and there.

What is life that i cannot always understand its ways?
Tell me if you know;
Maybe, you might have crossed over the River of Crocodiles.

What is love that i am yet to understand its ways?
Tell me if you know;
Maybe, you might have seen the Bright Star.

Rules!
With the laws around us to straighten us up;
But, i still need a teacher to lead me on.
Edward Kofi Louis

Rules that are ordained by some authority or by some common convention or ethic will not always command acceptance unless one legislates them for oneself. So, in a sense, we are all law-makers as well as faulty followers of given and customary Rules. AM
