I’m a free spirit!
Not controlled by society, or any construction thereof
Nor are my feelings instituted by negative emotions, this is just grief
I will swing to my own rhythm, dance to my own songs.
I will walk alone, but with no sadness, because I’m not empty.
I’m made up of many things beyond your reach,
I’m a soul, not a subject,
I will not be treated as such.
I should be allowed to speak before I get shouted down.
I’m not a child, although I do childlike things.
I’m not a dreamer, but I have my fair amount of dreams
I’m not ideal, yet I have my share of idealistic contributions.
I have thoughts, some that I express, and some I wish to withhold,
I will not give admit to narcissism, but I am a narcissist, to a degree.
Am I allowed to dwell in self, if I am my own creation?
You may direct me, but do not own me,
You cannot control my destiny, only I have such power.
I have the power to decide on my life
This is my life, I own this life, it’s all I have,
I believe in me.
I believe in me.
You don’t believe in me, yet I believe in you,
You may love me, but I need to love myself,
No-one is allowed to enter into these parts which are mine.
By doing so you create an enemy within
I’m not my own enemy, nor am I yours.
I don’t fight against my will, or against you
I chose to live my life,
You cannot end it for me.
By trying to be what you cannot be, are you are trying to control
There are no rules here, made up to suit myself.
I’m not selfish.
You bring out my self-centredness by provoking what is not yours
If you fight against me, I will win, will you cheat?
You can’t walk along the same road as me, it holds only my name,
I don’t walk along yours.
I’m the only one who understands me, I see me, I feel me, I exist.
Watch, but don’t come too close,
I will lie to you.
Don’t interfere with me, I’m the only one who has self-knowledge
The one who understands me.
I don’t ask anything of you
Leave me as you found me.
I’m only me.
