A Happiness By Any Other Name

Nothing appearing on my top ten list,
Prioritizes you...
As a focus to entertain.

I know what your expectations are.
And from where those habits you have,
Nutured to flourish those thoughts....
Generating with perceptions you should rid.

But trust me...
There is not a movement made I do,
That awaits any opinion of yours.
It's just the way it is.
I hope that doesn't offend you.

I was not raised to wish for another existence.

It is just my nature to take footsteps,
Without seeking to impress.
Or look for anyone's approval.

It is just my nature,
To identify first...
With that which pleases me.

A happiness by any other name...
Just is not mine to call and claim.
