You stand there and tell me

What you think I should say

You shove down my throat

Your opinions, your reasoning…

Your excuses.

You try to convince me that

What your saying is real,

That your lies are the truth.

But guess what?

I am me, always and forever.

I will be me, and no one else.

I will not accept your

Insanities as my own.

If I feel the need to be insane,

I will do so on my own.

If I feel the need to have

"what should be"

Shoved down my throat,

I will ask for it.

I am me.

Here, now, and always.
