Balled Of A Rose

suffocating in my darkness
drowning in my tears
i am sick and tired
of being controlled by my fears

waiting in line
for my life to begin
it has been so long
i am 14 years in

so sweet yet with thorns
this is the ballad of a rose
a flower so beautiful
but this is not the path i chose

it was chosen for me
i had no choice
it was chosen for me
i had no voice

The author's comments:
This piece is about how I act the way I do because of how everyone else treated me. I had to act certain ways and build walls to avoid further hurt and pain. I feel controlled by my fears and weaknesses. I did not choose my life people chose it for me.
