If I have a good day or bad day.
It's not up to you if I will be in a good mood, or bad mood.
It's not up to you How I will feel about myself, or how I choose to identify.
It's not up to you what category, or label I fall into. It's not up to you to give me the handbook,
Your handbook and tell me that's how to live?
It's not up to you to appoint yourself as the master of the universe.
Who died and made you Musilini??
Who tells me the sky is green and the grass is blue,
and you expect me to believe that?
Who tells me it's nighttime, and the light in shining outside my kitchen window?
Do you expect me to believe that?
My divine rights are joy, peace of mind, and Dignity.
It's not up to you to dictate whether I get to have it, or that you think you can have the audacity to take it away??
It's not up to you to tell me
where I've been or where I'm going. What I should look like,
and how should I shape myself.
It's up to my Higher Power to tell me.
It's up to the Law of the Land to tell me.
It's up to my teachers and mentors to tell me.
It's up to the governing bodies of our nation to tell me.
It's up to ME to tell me: the dreams I've created,
the hopes and wishes that my future holds for me. Its up to me to be happy today,
and not have to wait for something Bigger ,
or Greater to happen in order to achieve true JOY.
It's up to me to make the educated choices,
based on the vigilant observations of the environment around me,
and collected accurate data
which shows consistent patterns of behavior which guides me to make my own decisions.
Its up to ME ,
to "change that tape", and decide TODAY
to break old patterns which no longer work in my favor,
and choose the NEW .
