Why must I do,
What you want me to?

Why must I write,
how you say I must write?

Why must I say,
things you need me to say?

Why not do for yourself?
Why not write from your heart?
Why not say what you mean?

Do not live your life through me.
Do not voice your opinions through me.

I am not your puppet.
I am not your poet.
I am not your speaker.

Let me live my life,
free from your direction.

I am who I am,
no matter what you think.
