They will never stop,

Until they have full control,

Over the ones they love.

All they want is the power,

That feeling of success.

They don't care,

What they're doing to others--to me.

I've tried so hard to please them,

But my best was never good enough.

All they can see is my flaws,

And nothing more.

It's like the true me no longer exists.

They took away the love,

They took away the trust.

And they gained all the power.

They're only protecting us,

Because they don't want to fall.

They need us to keep them where they are.

Without us they would fall apart.

But it isn't love keeping us together.

We're only being used.

And so when they say they're trying to help me,

I know the truth.

They are protecting me,

Because if they didn't,

That would make them failures.

And so by being a failure,

I have made them failures as well.

Can't they see that it's to late for me?

They say they're trying to help,

But they're only making it worse.

I was fine before they offered their 'help,'

But now I'm falling apart.

Slowly they are taking away,

The few things I have left.

They are trying to change me,

And shape me into what they want me to be.

But when will they finally realize,

That I will never amount to what they want.

They will never accept me,

For who I really am inside.

They are trying to kill the very last part of me,

That is holding on for dear life.

But all of their efforts will be in vain.

It's too late now.

They ignored all of my cries before,

When I had been hurting for so long.

They looked at me and laughed,

While tears poured from my eyes.

So now they think that I will just,

Forget all the years I spent alone?

They think what their doing,

Will somehow make up for all that pain?

I don't want to take their hand this time.

I can save myself.

If they would just leave me in peace,

I would be able to striaghten things out.

But now I feel much too rushed,

And presious time is passing me by.

If only they would leave me alone,

Like they had for so long.

Why are they crawling back to me now,

After all of this time?

They just don't want to fail their mission.

They need me to pass the test,

They need me to survive.

But all of their efforts are in vain,

Because they're only making things that much worse.

Because they're trying to change who I am inside.

I am unaccepted in this world.
