Laura Zucca-Scott Returns

Don’t Tell Me
By Laura Zucca-Scott

Don’t tell who to be
I know
And if I didn’t
You could not help me

I’ll find my way
With time
And pain
With trials
And victories
With bitter losses

I will taste a ray of sun
Drink your laughter
Race a cloud in the sky

And when it is all said and done
You will know who I am
We will find comfort in our moment of grace
So, please, don’t tell me
You know
