    through the pitter patter
    i hear their chitter chatter
    they complain and say i drag my feet
    can’t hold me back
    so they hold conversations
    i hold fast to following my heart beat

    such disregard for their distractions
    may be mistaken as disrespect
    but if i took time out
    to take heed to their mouths
    i’d quickly be taken off track

    eyes on the prize
    and not the side lines
    i’m focused and blind as can be
    i’ve accepted the mission
    to pursue my life’s vision
    therefore i only see me

    i’m having such fun
    playing one-on-one
    against the man of my dreams
    that i’m in the process
    of becoming my best
    how could they ever compete

    i pay dues
    while they pay attention
    i told them to pay me no mind
    still they try to keep up
    with how I keep on
    i make moves and tell them keep trying

    instead of counting me out
    count your own blessings
    and stop counting my tattoos
    i’m at the top of my game
    you can’t top that
    so just count on you doing you

    a passionate person
    progressing on purpose
    accused of being seriously self-centered
    guilty as charged
    without a guilty heart
    forgive me, but i don’t remember

    needing anyone else’s permission to do me

    free, to be...you. i'm with that. no one can do you better than you...and every YOU has to decide if you can be true to YOU...not needing the permission of others...to do you.

    visited the site.

    nice to read you again.

    I Love The Flow!
    Brilliantly worded and explained:)
    We all will take heed to being the head of Ourselves that has been drowned by what's within Me!
    Someone hard to catch up to like the natural breeze our Spirits always seem to forsee;)
