To follow your own path!



Life!
 Full of choices and outcomes!
Both good ones and bad ones!
 Some times it gives sometimes it takes!
Some call it luck others prefer the term fate!
 One thing I've learned it is sometimes what you make it!
 Your ideas some will like!
Some will despise!
 Give back to life!
Only you can make your own wrongs right!
 You have to have an extra hand to give one away!
Someone said to me once you blame yourself for others flaws!
 Empathy maybe yet in truth I needed to move on!
Now I'm divorced yet my peace means it all!
 I realized for myself they're own decisions were not my own!
 Still finding a reason in looking to do right by me not everyone's else's clause!
