(517) Strong Mind - Poem by Melvina Germain

Bring me to water,
I refuse to drink.
It doesn’t matter who you are
nor what you think
I make all my own decisions
right or wrong.
My mind is set and very strong.
Don’t waste your time with me,
for can’t you see.
I’m in charge of my own destiny.

    Good on ya Melvina. I like to make my own decisions and not be swayed by other peoples opinions. I will listen, I'll observe but after deliberation I shall choose. A nice well written piece, from one determined lady.
    Love and hugs Ernestine XXX

    Mel, I'm surprised I beat everyone to get in with the first comment on this one. Yes I totally agree we are in charge of our own destiny. We might question where we are going at times, the decision is always ours in the end. Top marks from me and thanks for sharing it my friend.
