They tell me who to be,
They never let me be me.
They try to speak in my voice
They never let me make a choice.
They accused me of telling lies,
At a time when I wanted to die;
They never heard me cry.
They abandoned me!
At a time when I needed them most;
They left me, lost in my own tears,
For over twenty years.
They come to me,
Begging me to be there,
But when I needed them most,
They never showed me they cared!
They wonder why I walked away,
Why I took a different path;
Why I won't shed a tear,
For all of those lost years.
They don't seem to understand,
My life is better without them;
I have taken a different turn,
To reach those goals I yearn.
They don't like me building a new life,
Free from their pain and strife.
But this path I must travel,
And let my light shine,
Guiding me to the beauty that is mine.
