My Way

I'm not looking
for another
beginning
I'm not looking 
for the ending
I'm just
traveling
the only way
I know how
I've made it
this far
And nothing is going
to keep me
from following
my heart
no matter who
you are
You can take
a good long look
at me
But you can keep
your opinions
to yourself
about what it is
you see
I know I'm not
a millionaire 
but judging someone
by their monetary worth
just isn't fair
I may not live
the way you do
Just remember
that I'm me
and nothing you say
will turn me
into you

  4. So true, we all have to just be ourselves...and allow no one to change them into a clone of themselves. Everyone has to walk their own path as they see wish to.
