I shoulda turned left.
I shoulda listened.
 I would have been what they always hoped for me.
 I would have fulfilled their dreams.
I should have finished college. I should have stayed.
 But I ran. I ran far.
 Into the arms  of freedom.
 Chains broke free.
 Hearts shattered in the distance.
My own soul opened up.
I live on my own terms.
I shoulda turned left…
I’m so glad I didn’t.
