Responsibility At 30 - Poem by Paula Glynn

Now I have reached 30 years old,
I know I have to face my responsibilities,
I have to do as I must,
And face any problem head-on,
Because I am tough now,
And know my way through this life,
Even if it is not always easy,
For I have set myself goals and ambitions,
I see the future read by a gypsy fortune teller,
I am going to marry a handsome man,
And live happily ever after,
But that just makes me laugh,
I make my own dreams come true,
I don't need a tall, dark or handsome stranger:
I just need myself to guide me through this life,
Even if words sometimes cut me like a knife,
But I guess I will always be a sensitive soul,
I will also always need to be in control,
Even when I have and to hold,
Because I respect myself in ways I never did before,
I find my path is more clear and easy to navigate,
I just reach out for truths and spot lies,
And I only trust myself,
Even though I know other people can be right sometimes,
Still, I am not doing too badly,
So I will carry on this wise path,
And not suffer fools gladly.
