I chose Me

I chose Me

I chose me...
Was the only possibility I could see.
I felt the deadening of my soul again,
I felt controlled, knew this was the end.
You can try, but I know with certainty,
That when I have to choose, I'll always choose me.

I chose myself...
Not to live under the rule of someone else.
If I stand be it, I'll stand alone,
I have no trouble walking this path on my own.
I'd rather make footprints that I know are all mine,
Then walk a path of someone else's design.

Thank you!! I am honored that one of my silly little poems would compel you to post. And grateful that you liked it. Very kind words from you and I appreciate them as well.

Damn, good thing I came back. I forgot to flag and star this. OK, you have the flag and star now. All is well.

I've read that 4 times and each one added to the sense the first time gave me.

It's a real pleasure to read what you set down.
