On My own

If I have to do it
I’ll do it on my own
I don’t want your help
Please just leave me alone
I want to be by myself
In complete solitude
Where I can hide from my
Fears or a problem or two
I don’t need your advice
Because words I don’t need
I don’t need your help because
Weak I will not be
I will hold my head up high
And swear to you I will not cry
Just go away
And in the silence I will stay
Because I’m going to do it
And it will be on my own

I completely agree :). It drives me crazy when people always want me to do it their way. I'd rather do it my way and if I do it wrong, learn from it.

Thank you. i felt this poem more than wrote it. i wanted something where people would understand that i dont want to be told what to do but just listen or leave me alone. Thank you all for your comments

i can never go to my mom for anything, even though i do. all i hear is what's wrong with me and why it's always my fault. most times i just go to one of my close teachers. she can just listen.

this is very good work. i was expecting the last line to fit in with the rhymescheme, but it's very powerful overall.
