Not a Slave
I’ll bow,
 I’ll bend,
 I’ll crouch,
 I’ll kneel
None of it real
 
I see your face,
Oh Master of mine
You say
I’m nothing
Not even
Human
 
I am your slave
In flesh,
In blood
In tears,
In sweat
 
But here
In my mind
Here I am
Not owned
Belong to no one
But me
 
Here I am
Not a possession,
Not a toy
Here I am
Myself
