I Use To Struggle

I use to struggle with measuring up to the expectations of family and friends…
Juggling my life too and fro for the sake of others,
Over and over again.

Be it this way or be it that…
Conforming to the expectations of others I realized for me,
Was no longer where it’s at.

I’m not them and they’re not me…
And there is no freedom in this life,
When you allow others to direct and control your individual destiny.

When it comes to directing others,
I have neither the power, nor do I seek that right…
The most I’m willing to do,
Is offer up a little heart felt advice.

Take it or leave it, I am who I am,
Just one of many trying to help myself and others,
Get through this life the best we can!

Artist's Description

Live and let live would end so much strife, as long as we each showed a little respect for each other’s right to be unique.
