Come To The Point! - Poem by Eric Cockrell

i've come to the point
when i dont care what anyone
thinks about me!
with what time i have left,
i'm going to do and say
exactly what i feel,
and remain true to myself,
and my beliefs.
i will question all things,
and honestly examine all things.
i dare to be what i am.
i do not need agreement,
permission, praise,
or anyone to follow.
i expect the same from you,
and will respect you for it!

    A great poem. For many years in my younger days,
    I would always worry about what people thought of me.
    Now I'm older and wiser i don't care. A great write.

    One of the benefits of getting old methinks! ! 'To thine own self be true' has long since been my motto. Well written. (Report) Reply
