All My Own
 
All My Own


Consider all in the great unknown
I am not responsible for othersí choices
My reactions to circumstances are all my own

Pay close attention to all the evidence shown
Listen carefully to the myriad of voices
Consider all in the great unknown

All the seeds of doubt that have been sewn
I gather my feelings to make my own choices
My reactions to circumstances are all my own

When it seems dreadís reign is full blown
Listen to all those hopeful, encouraging voices
Consider all in the great unknown

Lessons learned as Iíve emotionally grown
I cannot control the weight of anotherís choices
My reactions to circumstances are all my own

Gaining strength through every milestone
Not responsible for more than my own choices
Consider all in the great unknown
My reactions to circumstances are all my own
