I Hate Thee

 

Thou sayst that thou must pursue me,

Yet I hate thee.

 

Thou knowst that I want another lover,

And thou willst now my anger discover.

 

Thou hast tried to involve our Duke,

And my plans with Lysander he has tried to rebuke.

 

However your plan, shall not work,

And I shall leave you with such a smirk.

 

I shall leave and enter the woods,

And you shall not find us as we hide under hoods.

 

I will have my fairy-tale,

And I will go to my wedding under a veil.

 

I shall forever live a happy life,

Living together as Lysander’s wife.

 

I shall no longer be pestered,

As Lysander and I can live together in a house sequestered.

 

I shall my superior not obey,

As I no longer feel the dismay.

 

I shall not do as my father asks,

I shall not undertake such tasks.

 

In fact I can do as I please,

And at last I can now feel at peace.

 

I feel as though the whole world is at my feet,

For Athens shall no more me mistreat.

 

I shall not spend a life as a nun,

For I shall forever you outrun.

 

I will at last live life how I choose,

And no longer be subject to this abuse.
