Anything but you.

I want to be treated differently.

Not like you are.

I want to be treated for my personality and not out fear like you are.

They like me because I am your relation.

But they're wrong. I'm not like you at all.

I have a soul. I care bout others.

But they don't care about me, all they see is a reflection of you in me.

And that's not how I want it.

I want to be a person.

I want to a criminal.

I want to be a terrorist, doctor or mechanic.

Just anything but you.

You make me sick. I don't hate you, I need to respect you for that and I feel nothing for you.

My gate closes for you.

You're not my brother. You're nothing.

I'm not you. Why don't they see that.

I am me. Not you.

Please anything but you.

Anything. Please.

I'd beg. Slaughter. Sacrifice.

Just so they don't see me as a younger you.

I want to be my own person.

But yet again I guess that's too much to ask.

I'm just you. Feared, hated, despised.

Please. See me as me.

I'm begging you.

Just give me a chance and ill be anything.

Just not him. Anything but him.
