Irrelevant

It needs to become irrelevant that "I'm Still Standing," Elton John.
Perhaps it is true that I've been put upon
this Earth for more than that,
that I'm destined for more than that.

Irrelevant.  It.  Perhaps.  I'm still standing.
I'm not an It.  I'm not irrelevant.  I'm landing
on a different runway this time.
No more deja vu for me this time.

This time.  Why so many years spent!
Why let them live rent-
free inside my head?
Why live filled with dread?

Break free!  Be me! Stop being
who you think they want you to be.  How freeing
to think it can be different.
It will be so very different...

I'm not there...yet.

With apologies to Sir Elton John
