I think I’ve lived my life,
I’ve been a daughter, mother and a wife,
But what I have stopped to be,
Is what is essentially me,

What is this me you might ask,
It is the playfulness in which I once did bask,

It is the social being that I was once,
A life that I now renounce,

It was the fluidity which many called disorganized,
Now it is straitjacketed and organized,

I questioned a lot earlier,
Now I conform, am more of a complier,

At these times a song reverberates in my mind,
A song close to my heart I find,

“I decided long ago
Never to walk in anyone’s shadows
If I fail, if I succeed
At least I’ll live as I believe
No matter what they take from me
They can’t take away my dignity,”

I’m not sure if this holds true for me anymore,
I am no longer me, I go where the winds blow
