Have you ever experience times when you are pursuing a goal it seems circumstances and people at times question your motive/ambition/desire to achieve that goal? It's like they are telling you to stay in your place, don't aim or try to achieve something greater or more than you are. When that happens you want to "speak back to them" and say, no I will not... I will dare to dream, achieve and hope...

 

STAY IN YOUR PLACE 
By: Karen L. McFarlane
They keep telling me to
Stay in my place
I’ve heard it so much
That I have begun to
Voluntarily stay in that place
They say is mine
 
Give me an opportunity
To show who I know
I can be
No… they said
Stay in your place
The place we assigned you
 
I have something to say
Let my voice be heard
No… they said
Who you… what can you say
No… oh no… stay in your place
 
I am left to ponder…
What is this place
I am assigned
A place of limits
A place that confines
Me to be less than me
The true me
The real me
The epitomized me
A place where all men should be
Free …just to be… and do all
For which they are placed on earth
 
So I must remove
The limitations of that place
That even I began
To be self-confined
And emancipate my mind
From staying in that place
Of retardation, bondage
Suppression… regression
No freedom of expression
Of the blossoming me
So no… I will not “stay in your place
For it is yours… not mine!

Well written piece and never allow anyone or anything to get in the way of your own desires and dreams, the road to achievement....

Be always safe,
Karen
