That’s Just The Way I Am

 “That’s Just the Way I Am”!

He says, “That’s just the way I am!”
I say, don’t ever use that phrase because…
You are all other things as well;
One who can change, admit they’re wrong,
Avert the spell, take charge
When reasoning gone wrong comes barging in
Damaged by an ego
That refuses to let go.

There is no predetermined way…
But rules of honesty built into daily facings
Which demand a certain bravery;
Flexibility, humility, no vanity,
Untold attributes contributing
To what you’re capable of being.

“That’s Just The Way I Am” 6.30.2021 Pure Nakedness II; Arlene Nover Corwin
