On A Path I Paved

'You have those 'eyes'.
Open, wide and bright.'

I made a place for myself,
Daring the urge to seek acceptance.
With a commitment made to go the distance.
Since so obvious to me I knew the difference.

I admit there were times I would attempt to fit in.
To perceive a 'normalcy' others projected,
Had been something they were...
And did pretended to receive an approval so effective.

At first in those early stages,
No one paid attention to me to notice this.
Until I persisted on a path I paved,
With a commitment made to go the distance.
Since so obvious to me I knew the difference.

'You have those 'eyes'.
Open, wide and bright.'

I admit there were times I would attempt to fit in.
With others who pretended,
An approval sought...
Would get them more attention.

But...
When I made the commitment,
On a path I paved to go the distance...
So obvious to me I knew the difference.
