Life Around The Corner

Choosing Life and Operating Happiness

Popeye The Sailor Man

I want what I want,
I am who I am.
No one can tell me
What I can’t and what I can.

People’s misconceptions
Had me bury my head in the sand.
I can’t bare living
By someone else’s command.

Who is “a friend”?
And what are “pure intentions”?
To know what is “best” in life
I don’t need your interventions.

Tap, tap, tapped your doubts
Into my head,
It made me feel dead.
I can’t believe I let it spread.

I reached new levels of tension.
It took more than isolation
To transfer to a new dimension,
Focus on self-invention.

I can start my ascension,
Give myself much needed attention.
I will not be misled.
I make my own bed, I lead myself ahead.

        It’s worth every bit of the work involved. I’m in the same place and have never felt more free and like I’m actually myself now.

      4. Tut Yashar Avatar

        Yes I agree. The feeling of freedom and being myself is priceless and worth everything 💕 I am so happy you are in this place 😊

        I’m happy that you are too my friend! I’m actually working on a piece that’s going to talk about that because I feel like the best part of all of this is going from feeling jealous of other people’s successes to feeling absolute joy and happiness when I hear about somebody doing well. I get especially happy when I hear about people that have started down the road of living an authentic life, true to who they are. So know that I am so happy for you! And hopefully I’ll get that piece done and be able to post it sometime this week.
