Doing Things my Way

We all love differently

Searching for something

To set our souls free

There come moments

When we want to be
Tied to someone

Who loves us only

Then there comes a time

When we want to go our own way

Not be tied nor bound

By anyone’s lies

I’ve traveled down many roads

Those that made me happy

On those which I found me

Roads that made me wish

That I could be home

And roads that brought such adventures

That I could roam on and on

There were times when

I knew that a love

Wasn’t right for me

And I wished they’d let me be

I’ve never wanted to conform

Dancing to my own music

Has always been fine with me

I don’t want someone

To tell me the kind of beat

I should march to

Or who I should like and why

I make my own parades

And do things my way

So if you want to bind me up

And lasso me like a pony

You can take the next road

Right out of my town

Gypsy Rose Lee,

I am quickly growing to love your pieces! I seem to really connect with them and I just love this message! Yes, we should all be able to dance to the beat of our own drums and it should be embraced by those dancing and those watching! The song is a perfect fit, again!

Love it! Up and everything ~ Sharing too!

I also don't feel good when someone dictates my life. This is very thought provoking.

Lovely poem and great thought - the only way is our way when God is directing our lives and we leave it in His hands.
