Poem # 168
I deeply like this poem; It shows a lot about the inner part of me that’s strong... I wrote it when I felt I was trying to be led by someone who was doing his best to push me out of the way; someone who acted so childishly just to try to destroy my accomplished success…
I don’t want you to think it’s arrogance, but even if you do, you’re totally free to do so… :)
I hope you like the poem :)
It reminds me with a beautiful old song for Mel C.. This song has always inspired me and I really love it .. "Northern Star"
I won’t be controlled, I won’t succumb,
I don’t care if the whole world is dumb.
I’m so dignified, my heart is brave,
Even if it leads me to my eternal grave.
If it’s my right, then I’ll openly talk;
Away from the stand I refuse to walk.
Into the battle is where I belong,
I know I can fight, I know I’m strong,
I can defend my rights, make a choice,
I deserve to have a loud, heard voice,
That everyone should clearly respect,
Coz I have the right to talk and object!
Why should I be a follower, not the leader?
I shouldn’t be obliged to be life’s reader,
Coz I can write my own chosen fate,
And find my way where I can be great;
The way to commemorate who I am,
To be unique in the world’s busy jam,
The way to carve my self-made story,
Into the walls of history with real glory,
The way where I can feel I was truly alive,
Not just someone who struggled to survive…
So, even if anyone thinks this is extra pride,
Someday I’ll prove that I haven’t lied!
