You cannot tell me how to feel,

All my emotions are very real.

And they are mine to understand,

Out of your reach; out of command.

You may concur or disagree,

You cannot take these things from me.

I may feel joy or I may feel sad,

There is nothing more you need to add.

For this is my heart; this is my right,

These are the poems I wish to write.

And you may read or you may not,

The fucks I gave I no longer got.

For I have had: “Don’t feel this way”,

The phrase; the words most people say.

At least to feel means I’m alive,

Although I’m down; I’m meant to thrive.

I will embrace and not reluctantly,

The things I feel; belong to me.
