i try to be independent, to tell them all that i can do it by myself.
they smother me with their worries and their fears.
i want to live my life as i see it.
but they want me to live my life as they see it.
i want to be accepted as i am.
i am simply me
and i am encased in their cage of fears
and dreams that never slipped into reality.
they dont know that i plan to escape
to run away.
to discover the world on my own
as the others have done before me
they may never forgive me
but i have to see the world beyond their fears
and dreamless dreams.
