Shedding the label

' I will survive' by Gloria Gaynor. I do not like this song, perhaps I did once. Survive defined as : continue to live or exist, especially in spite of danger or hardship. I do not wish to merely live or exist I wish to feel alive..to be free of danger or hardship.

I rotate the dial on the car radio and eliminate the disco beat from my ears....the lyrics linger... fluttering, around my head and in my gut. I am not a victim ..I recite and repeat, repeat and reset. I glance in the mirror, turn the key in the ignition and move forward..

To be tagged with survivor implies I must have been the victim and on my journey my baggage ain't labelled. I will move forward, feel alive and compose my own lyrics as I go ... who knows I may even be accompanied on air guitar.
