Just as your choices aren’t in my jurisdiction,
your authority doesn’t rule over my every decision.
I will absolutely respect what you have to say,
but, at the end of the day,
I will decide to live my life my own way.
I’m going to do what I have to.
Progress is the journey,
success is the destination,
and my heart is my compass,
so I don’t cash out on the two cents of others
and I can’t let your thoughts
make me lose focus.
I will always do things
as I think they should be,
so do what you must,
but let me do me.
