Our Story Is Ours

One Day

I woke up

To realize

My joyney

Was Mine

And no one else’s

All my life

I was told to act

Or be or do

Follow what others do

The world changed

Others didn’t

They wanted the same old

Sure the rules and manners

Still matter and should matter

But there was something else

A connection long since lost

We all want to be ourselves

And follow our own dreams

Some say that won’t pay

Others say do as they did

Those old ways are not always

There for us to follow

Or even think of being

So a new way is developed

A new path to travel on

As others laugh

I know my joyney is mine

I must keep on it

Some may criticize

But who says they are perfect anyway

I know I need to wake up

And to be my best me

For this joyney is mine

And it will suit me just fine

So critics go on your way

And I will go on mine

And maybe someday

You will find your joyney is just fine

And inspire, teach, support

Others to find their own joyney ~Pauline Harris
