In life so much is such a taboo,
too many things you ought not to do.
Do them anyway, just for the thrill,
right from the heart,
your soul,
your will.
People may gasp,disgust, dismay.
That'll just increase the secrets we play.
Wont be told what's right or wrong,
the world's just singing to a different song.
So, lay down the law, judge, criticise,
with your narrow minds and tiny eyes.
I wont abide by your restricting law,
I'll live my life, 'till there is no more

    It's a healthy way to living Jenny, many though find it hard to find a balance between adapting to belong, and being themselves, and the journey to discover each is very long, it took many years to live this way my dear, I am 54 and yes, I finally am living closer to my authentic self than ever before, were the past years waster, hell no, love to you Rose xxx

    if you live your life alone, be free and break a leg, if there is someone in your life, won't you try to be safe for him? sorry it came from my heart, thank you for this wild poem.
