My Rules

You can say you don’t understand
Digging your heals in the sand

It’s the why and the what that you need
It’s the rules that I have, don’t you see

It’s not about you but the lessons I’ve learned
It’s a love and trust that has to be earned

This is not a game or a power trip, if you will
It’s about a long life worth living, that’s the deal

I’ll roll with the punches, I’ll sit back for the ride
But, by my own rules, I have to abide

Rules I have designed to fit with my needs
from the lessons I’ve learned, by the pain I have seen

Not meant to punish, but to protect my sweet heart
remembering their purpose can be hard at the start

I try very hard to keep them in the back of my mind
But, I sometimes forget and It’s only pain that I find

Don’t take it personally, It’s not about you
We all have our shields and this is one too

    I loved this, Lola–good for you! Yes, we all have our rules and boundaries that we’re comfortable with.
