Oh what sweet sweet, victory .
To finally say.. "HEY THIS IS ME.”
Now what you see is what you get
No longer do I worry or fret!
Would I fit in with this particular crowd
Should I be serious, or just laugh out loud.
Oh dear…. now what am I going to wear
Yikes.. I can’t do nothing with my hair.
What! be seen without makeup, “Oh no”
Okay, just a tad more lipstick before I go.
Ugh!! do these earrings really match
Oh Lord…this dress makes me look fat!
Are you available, can you do this for me
As I listen to a voice with an urgent plea.
Finally breaking down, I melt and give in
Oh Lord, I can't believe I did it again!!
Up to my head I feel my pressure go
Saying YES! again, when I really meant NO!
Slapping myself saying…"You did it again!”
When will this madness in my life ever end.
My life was so complicated as could be
Always caring what others thought of me.
I said that's enough, I needed a break
What was I thinking for heaven's sakes .
I’m proud to say, that today I'm now free
The disease to please club is no longer for me.
Deleted my membership, and got out in a flash..
I'm a new woman, and I’m not looking back.
