If I'm what has happened to me, I am simply a martyr. If I'm what I've done, I'm the worst kind of monster.

If I'm what I've wished to be, I am a queen. If I'm what I chose to become, I'm a fierce warrior who chases her dreams.

For me, that's the way it goes. Different sides tell of different woes. The heart feels what minds don't know, Yet thoughts tread where others never go.

If I am what I fear, Then I'm no longer free. If I am what I see, Then I'm no longer who I was born to be.

If I am what I drink, Then I am slowly dying. If I am what I feel, Then I'm already dead.
