The Rule of Self

I’ve made myself by rules
And bound myself by them
Slave of my own free will

Two kinds of rules

Rules that others make for us
Rules that we’ve made for ourselves

Rules we follow with our heads
Rules we follow from our hearts

Rules we do not care to honour
Rules we care not to dishonour

Rules that are made because they could be broken
Rules that exist because they should be followed

Rules that are because truth is
Rules that are because truth is ignored

And it would seem that at every moment there are only two kinds of rules. Thus, only one of two ways to do per time.
