As usual, life doesn't go as planned. But hey, I'm starting to learn to roll with the punches (as they say) (and while we're on that subject, who are "they" anyway?).
It's a big wide world out there, with lots of places to explore. And hide.
"The smell of your skin lingers on me now...
I need some shelter of my own protection
To be with myself and center,
Clarity, Peace, Serenity...
The path that I'm walking
I must go alone
I must take the baby steps 'til I'm full grown, full grown
Fairytales don't always have a happy ending, do they?
And I foresee the dark ahead if I stay
I hope you know, I hope you know
That this has nothing to do with you
It's personal, myself and I
We've got some straightenin' out to do
And I'm gonna miss you like a child misses their blanket
But I've got to get a move on with my life
It's time to be a big girl now
And big girls don't cry..."
