I Did it My Way

Published March 20, 2014 by Stuff My Brain Thinks

This is dedicated to all of those people who think they know what is best for my life. I may not always make the best decisions but these decisions are mine. I would rather make a ton of mistakes on my own, then to live a life according to what others think. I did this for many years, and I was not living. I was not me. I was someone else. I was a thousand someone else’s. I stood for nothing, because every stand I took was someone else’s. Since standing up for myself, since making my own decisions and living a life of authenticity, I now know what living is all about. So in the words of Frank Sinatra; I Did it My Way!!

And now, the end is near
And so I face the final curtain
My friend, I’ll say it clear
I’ll state my case, of which I’m certain

I’ve lived a life that’s full
I traveled each and every highway
And more, much more than this
I did it my way

Regrets, I’ve had a few
But then again, too few to mention
I did what I had to do
And saw it through without exemption

I planned each charted course
Each careful step along the byway
And more, much more than this
I did it my way

Yes, there were times, I’m sure you knew
When I bit off more than I could chew
But through it all, when there was doubt
I ate it up and spit it out

I faced it all and I stood tall
And did it my way

I’ve loved, I’ve laughed and cried
I’ve had my fill, my share of losing
And now, as tears subside
I find it all so amusing to think I did all that

And may I say, not in a shy way
Oh, no, oh, no, not me, I did it my way

For what is a man, what has he got?
If not himself, then he has not
To say the things he truly feels
And not the words of one who kneels

The record shows I took the blows
And did it my way

Yes, it was my way

  • I did it my way and got handed the bill for doing so. I knew to much and would not listen even though I knew some of those interrupting me well right. I am in the words of the intelligent mule, a good example of a “dumb ass” and therefore should have never been so stubborn.
