Waiting for

I was standing there waiting for your approval,


Waiting for you to acknowledge I exist


Waiting for your acceptance,


Waiting to hear I love you no matter what


Waiting to see the slightest glimpse of some emotion you might feel for me


Waiting to hear you tell me it's alright I'm not perfect,


Waiting on the day when I get tired of trying to please you


Waiting on the day when you don't get to decide what makes me happy


Waiting on the day when my opinion means more to me than yours


Waiting on the day when I love myself even if you don't


That day has finally come and I am no longer waiting


No more will I ever live my life to please you


I now live my life for me

Nice poem. I think most people are looking for that person that makes them feel like they can do anything. I'm sure your waiting will be rewarded. When I saw Janis there, couldn't help but think of her song "Bobby McGee". She said, "Feeling good was good enough more me, good enough for me and my Bobby McGee."
