I Just Will

There was an overwhelming feeling.

I have been letting someone down.

My fear stopped me short of my goals.

It is not like me to let another get in my heart.

I did not want to be Carly Simon.

My heart was held hostage.

I want to make this right.

What I have is mine.

Just the sharing does not make it his.

That is all I have to say about that.

    When we try to live for another… our lives become so complicated because we have those feelings of ‘letting them down’…but when we realize we must first live for ourselves …those feelings are less dominate in our mind….just a random thought brought on by your poem.
