I am not going to be ashamed of wanting more
choosing unconventional paths for reaching my goals
Adding goals as I grow and evolve
sewing my perfection with perceived flaws
Just because I don’t fit your mold, doesn’t mean I don’t fit
Just because I don’t fall in line, doesn’t mean I can’t fly
I take ownership of my choices and all the outcomes
I am creating an existence with ferocity and purpose
No matter how unclear
my seemingly tangled journey is my greatest gift
No matter how frequent
my badges and blemishes will continue to coexist
It is my story and I alone will sign off when all’s said and done.
It is my life and I alone will live between being born and dead.
Here’s to carving one’s own path no matter how unconventional it seems. Written for Christine’s December Challenge.
