The Final Ultimatum

Not listening to ultimatums anymore
steering my life in the wrong direction

Too many missed opportunities

Because it’s your personal belief
of how life should be lived
It creates chaos in mine

I’ll achieve my own goals
Be who I want to be

Make my own decisions
If I fail
Then at least I’ve experience
instead of your final words
cutting me off before it starts

If you say to me
“You’ll never make it because …”

I’ll punch you

Sure! Reality comes into it as well

Making my own mark in this world
Living life by my rules

Oh! And one last thing

No more ultimatums
