Conditioned

I was taught the word "disobey";
And when I disobey I am wrong,
Because that is what I was taught.

 

When I question, doubt, rebel;
I am chastised for my own good.
And I will understand someday,
When I am deemed worthy of
Knowing by the authority.

 

The self-proclaimed authority is accepted;
But no one remembers why.
So we continue to obey,
Willingly.
