Whatever you do.
Do it with faith.
Do it with conviction.

Donít listen to the mealy mouths
Borne from shouldersí chips

Donít listen to the voices within, without
Borne from fears and expectations

Set your course
Straight and true.
Donít look back.
Hoist your flag.
Fix your eye
Upon the enchanting horizon

And when youíre blue
You always have you.

And the next time someone
Rains on your parade
Smile at their grimace
Steady your heart
Walk your way.

And when the voices gnaw
Cut you to the core
Brandish your sword
Cut them free
Strike upon a path of liberty.

And whatever anybody says
Love, in all its many forms
Is not simply a flight of fancy
It is, beyond doubt,
The reality.

Sing your song
Dance your path.

I like this a lot and kinda identify with it. It shoots from the hip. I adore the last two stanzas and agree with

You always have you'

Ideas, thoughts, opinions and aspirations
- These have little truck with matters of punctuation

Spot on Walrus - very powerful and gutsy. I particularly liked 'dance your path'...
