A Personal Coup

I can feel it

deep down in my soul,

there is something there

I can’t control.

It is slowly rising

to the surface

to inform me

of my new purpose.

I hope it is going to

break me free,

so, I can finally be

the real me.

I’ve spent too long

being told what to do,

it is time to launch

my personal coup.

No more worrying

about what others say,

I’m looking ahead

and going my way.

  1. A Wonderful soulful write! It is a great freedom to live life as ones true self.
    I often wonder what so many people are afraid of when choosing to hold back so much of their own soul contributions to the world? It really shouldn’t matter what others say…it is a Big world that we live in, there will always be someone who will like each of us in place of those who rather not!
    I like your poem very much!

      1. Ah, you’re welcome! Each poem that you have written carry many messages for your readers to relate to! I was trying to locate your write about the ‘Critic’ but somehow seem to have overlooked that one. It rang true! Nice job!
