I am my own person A non-conformist to the core If all of us were replicas Life then would be a bore. I never confine myself to rules I do pretty much as I please I listen to my inner voice Rules make me ill at ease. I am the shy type I am fine, it's me I love lonely contemplation I delight in my company, you see. Rules on how to eat right, speak right, dress right A disaster to me spells Follow all these I might If only I were someone else. Reading is my passion Books my greatest treasure Books are my addiction Oh what endless pleasure. I never insist others conform to such and such I have tolerance for others differences Let others be themselves pretty much Happy with their own preferences. Married to a man divinely blessed Kind, humble, down-to-earth Home is filled with happiness Contentment, joy and mirth. Live and let live, my motto in life Happiness and contentment my goal Greatly fear war and strife I am myself, the unique human soul.
