Let the dogs bark

Let the dogs bark
They are irrelevant
Most dogs are all bark
No bite
If you pause to throw stones
Every time one barks
You will never
Reach your destination

So
Let the dogs bark
Do not slow your pace
Look back only to
Assess your current situation
Navigate the circumstances
Pause to throw stones
Only when you must
If you get bitten
Take time to heal the wound
Then focus on forward

And
Let the dogs bark
Ignore their howls and growls
Among them
You may eventually find
A friend that’s true
A love that’s real
Stay your course
Hold onto your beliefs
Listen to your Creator
Follow your instincts
Accept yourself as you are
And
Let the dogs bark
