At Last (feat. Charlie Rose)

from by The Shy Retirer



Am I finally free?

Can I at present be me?

With my upward identity

Am I valued entity?

Acting and striking out on my own volition,
Selfless or selfish, I merely listen to my intuition
Gradually as I come out of my shell,
I contemplate if the actions I do ever mean well

I've lost sleep many nights
Fighting with myself over who I want to be
Wondering if people I see will like or judge me
Wondering if I could just accept and love me

At last,
I'm becoming genuinely what I've always wanted
Since in the past,
My growth's continually faltered and stunted

I'll cut loose what's needed to make concessions
Yet I'll proceed,
With astute and thus heeded discretion

This time,
I will not succumb to a breakdown and fold
As I'll find,
A chance to not run, but regain control
