A Further Hesitating In The Waste Of Time

I understand where you are going with this.
I even understand,
Why you might want this addressed.
But understanding 'you'...
I will never consider my priority.

Perhaps your therapist has you thinking,
You are okay.
And that is the reason your therapist gets paid.

But the time I have been given,
To live my life as I wish...
To adventure and explore,
Every moment of it...
I am going to do that.

It has only been a few years,
I realized I can do that and more...
Without asking for anyone's approval.
Or assistance.

And today?
I know what I can choose to accept.
Or choose to ignore.
And today and days ahead,
I will choose to ignore...
A further hesitating in the waste of time,
Others find important.
