About Own Person

One of the best realizations I've had in life is that happiness is created from within and the first step towards that creation is taking responsibility for where one is at. It turns out to be a lot more fun than the blame game!

—Jamie Shea

Own Person

I am my own person
I breathe, I live
I make my own choices
To take, to give
That's how my song is sung
The story is begun
I'm here to be my own person

You are your own person
You breathe, you live
You make your own choices
To take, to give
No matter where you run
That's how the game is won
You've got to be your own person

Time dances in concentric circles
Claiming bonds on you
Some say that you are a product
Of the evil done to you
But you are your own
And when that is known
You'll truly be your own person

Time dances in concentric circles
Claiming bonds on you
Some say that you are a product
Of the evil done to you
But you are your own
And when that is known
You'll truly be your own person

I am my own person
I breathe, I live
I make my own choices
To take, to give
And when the day is done
And every song is sung
I'll still be here - my own person

—Jamie Shea
