Since my last birthday, people have been telling me
That it’s too late for me now – that my time has passed.
I don’t want to believe that. It doesn’t feel right.
No one can tell me that my future can’t be bright.
I’ve the freedom to do what I want at long last.
I can make my life the way I want it to be.
It may be ‘too late’ for those who say that it’s so
Because if you desire something but it’s ‘too late,’
It will never show up. There’s contradictory
Energy operating within the psyche.
It will affect your ability to create
What you want in your life. It’s a good thing to know.
I really want it, and it is well on its way.
That’s a healthier way of stating my intent
To be open to all that life has to offer
And to not let the judgements of others deter
Me from my path. I must exercise discernment
In my interactions with others through the day.
If I try to explain things, people may not be
On the same page as I am. I’ll just understand
And not try to re-litigate or to defend
My thinking to others who cannot comprehend.
It’s not my duty to lead others by the hand.
I’m free to look at life optimistically.
