All For Me

It’s a new feeling 
To be doing something for myself
And not for someone else.
For a long time
I tried to modify myself
In the hope of catching the eye
Of another,
To seek their approval.
But those days are behind me.
There is no longer anyone there
To notice me.
I’m on my own now.
So I’m picking myself up
And working hard.
I’m setting myself goals
And achieving them.
It feels good to only be judged
By my own standards.
I feel free from the scrutiny
Of another’s eyes.
I’m proud
And I’m happy
And I’m ready
To be the best I can be,
For me.
