Freedom

My personal history
has been written by
everyone but me
And…
It is nothing
like Me
 
Being a child
of the 60s and 70s,
I did what was
expected of me.
Never…never wanting to
cause anyone to be hurt
or disappointed by
me or my actions.
 
As a result, I lost
so much of ME…
Who I really was…
Am…
Was never really
myself…thinking
of others for years
 
Finally, at this stage
of my life, I do what I want…
what pleases ME first…
Not caring what others
say or think
 
This is my life…
My time…
And…
I will NEVER
be manipulated…
chastised…
ridiculed…
OR
held back…
Again for
Being ME
