Dont Listen/ Listen

Don't listen when they tell you that you can't be somebody well known someday
Don't listen
to the stupid remarks people say
Don't listen
when people spread rumors.

Listen
when people give you advise
Listen
when they try to bring you spirit high
Listen
because they always try to help you.

Don't listen
to the people who try to get you high
Don't listen
to the people who lie
Don't listen
to the people who tell you that your ugly.

Listen
to the people who make you smile
Listen
to the people and get to know them for a while
Listen
to the people for you may learn something everyday.

'Listen to the people for you may learn something everyday.' So... I must listen to people or not? lol Because sometimes people's advice is a stupid remark, and they may make you smile by telling a lie you just want to believe. Things are not all black and white like in your poem.
