This way of life is mine
it was given, I did not ask
regrets are mingled with
I don’t give a damn
moments perhaps wished erased
but to the contrary
moments I would not banish
would my way of life be different
I cannot change so I can’t tell

Temptation has led to trouble
lies have caught me out
becoming a mother gave me inner peace
my true calling without doubt
growing, learning on this path I walk
the path that’s known as life
accepting, forgiving and loving
this is what my journey is all about

being the person I am today
learning how to grow like
tossed autumn leaves revealing
another part to me, this is all that
I can show, for there hasn’t been
another way, I’m simply who I am
you either love, hate me or
simply just accept the person that
you know

my path I still shall follow
till it shuts with eyes closed tight
I’ll have memories of the good and bad
of the laughter and of my tears
my foibles and my strengths
but would I choose another way
no I swear this on my life
my path is something I continue
till I bid this world good-night
