Today's Quote:

"You cannot prevent the birds of sadness from passing over your head, but you can prevent their making nests in your hair."

~~Chinese Proverb

Written by ©Diana Jillian 4/10/12

I cannot be what you want
I sit and think this over
Truth or consequence
Truth is told
I can't be what you want me to be

Though I've tried
I must be different
And keep on path
No matter where it leads
Even in the land of cardboard

I have to keep trying
To keep pushing
Discouragement along the way
But it's okay

I will ignore it
Set it aside

Break the laws within my mind

Life will pan out
As expected

Shush up the voices
And keep living the lie
Till it's true

Lie it true
Believe in it

That is me
In charge

  1. Hi Diana,

    I really like the quote, very true!

    Your poem is wonderful and wise! And again so true.
    We can only fool ourselves into being something we're not for so long...in the end we are who we are. Being true to that isn't always easy but in the end we're going to be happier for being what we need in life not what others think we need.
    Our dreams may start as dreams or lies even, but if we stick to our convictions in our paths that eventually with paitence and time we will arrive where we know we were always meant to be.:-)
    Thank for sharing this wonderful,thoughtful poem!
