Living, loving & learning (LEO BUSCAGLIA)

Living, loving & learning (LEO BUSCAGLIA)

My happiness is me, not you.

Not only because you may be temporary,

But also because you want me to be what I am not.

I cannot be happy when I change

Merley to satisfy your selfishness.

Nor can I feel content when you critize me for not

thinking your thoughts,

Or for seeing like you do.

You call me a rebel.

And yet each time I have rejected your beliefs

You have rebelled against mine.

I do not try to mold your mind.

I know you are trying hard enough to be just you.

And I cannot allow you to tell me what to be –

For I am concentrating on being me.

You said that I was transparent

And easily forgotten.

But why then did you try to use my lifetime,

To prove to yourself who you are?
