Mind Yah Business

I don’t care to spare a thought where I’m not needed.

I know my place in the universe.

Divine, I am, but all-knowing, I am not.

I am open to converse and discuss concepts larger than myself,


I mind my own business.

Unsolicited advice had become my vice.

Spewing half-formed thoughts like law,

I meddled in the lives of those I thought I loved.

By doing so, I broke friendships and ruined relationships.

That’s when I learned to mind my own business.

I know I know nothing,

and with this knowledge, I learned to shut my mouth

and open my ears.

Even when someone asks for advice,

I question rather than answer.

I choose to teach people to fish

instead of searching in the dark

or looking for a shooting star to wish on.

I mind my own business because

that’s the only business I have any right to minding.
