I try to talk

You don't listen

I try to say what is on my mind

You don't care

All I want is to live my life

I will still spend time with you

But I want the time away from you as well

Even though I want to be myself

I can't

You run my life

You control my choices

You may give me a few options

But you still want to direct my actions

I understand you reasoning

But I still want to get away

I may have changed

But that is life

Why can't you accept me?

Why don't you let me try to experience life?

I just want to discover who I am without your influence

I just want to live by my choices

Talking doesn't work with you

So what else can I do?
