What’s Mine Now (3TC)


Prompt words:  single, individual, alone

Call me crazy, but

How many ways to say it—

Heart’s content single

Soul has rarely felt alone

Can’t recall a ‘loneliness’


This is much-blessed gift—

As an individual

I was dishonored

Forced to reflect others’ tastes

And fulfill their dreams, goals…life


I have my own now

Not compelled to match those folks…

Joy, Peace, Freedom—MINE
