How much control can one have over their own lives?

I wanted to live

So I cut off the umbilical cord

Does it matter if

With my teeth or a sword?

 

I wanted to love

What else do but stalk?

Should I have asked politely

Waited till we had the ‘talk’?

 

I wanted to understand

So I jumped out

With or without a chute

Does it matter since

There is no truth without doubt?

 

Yet for all I wanted

Everything I do is a crime

Waiting for the right courtroom

And the worst one of all

Is the courtroom of time

 

Yes I needed to be a victim

In a place where all claim to be

I needed so many people

The least one I needed was me
