Ask For What You Want Today

20. Ask for What You Want Today

In one of my early sessions of participating in group therapy, I started to write songs once I got home. One of my early songs was Ask For What You Want Today. It seems like something obvious but I discovered that I was hoping that people close to me would read my mind and guess what I wanted and it was frustrating to me when that didn’t happen (at least not very often).

So I learned to take responsibility because that’s what it came down to—me asking for what I want and me taking charge of my very own life.

—–

Ask for what you want today,

Find for yourself another way.

Ask yourself what you want to do,

Find the time to make it come true,

In the search you find—you.

Ask for what you want today.

Find for yourself another way.

How many times have you done what would please?

How many times have you done what everyone agrees

Is the best thing for you to do?

How many times have you doubted what you thought?

How many times have you simply gone ahead and bought

What someone else says is true?

How many times have you said “I cannot do

What I would like, ‘cause I’ve learned so well that it is true

That what I want has to be last”?

How many times have you not asked the words?

How many times have you imagined that you heard

That the answer was clearly “No”?

Ask for what you want today…..
