All of my life someone else always pulled the strings don't do this don't do that walk this way walk that way talk this way don't talk that way

Even now as a grown woman their still always someone pulling the strings of my life

Don't get me wrong letting someone else pull the strings turned me into a great person I'm respectful honest trustworthy loyal kind but sometimes it makes me wonder if I would've been these thing the whole time without someone pulling strings

But there a part of me that's always wonder if other people didn't pull the strings who would I be today?

Would I be that chef or the writer or the country music singer all big questions Will never be answered

All of my life people pull the strings to my destiny but these never led me where I wanted to be

If I would've let people pull my own strings would I have done all the things I wanted to be would I have married the man that I did or married someone who understands me only time will tell when will I stop letting people pull my strings

Time for me to start choosing my own destiny time for me to start pulling my own strings Time for me to start walking and talking and choosing my own things

    A well wriiten tbought provoking piece. Years ago I found myself thinking that same thing and decided to take control of my own destiny. I took myself away from a those external strings. I booked a holiday on my own and found real freedom and myself in that time away. I hope this gets nominated too best wishes Milly x
