It is not what you are or how much you own, but who you are.

I can't do it.
I want to,
and I need to,
but my own stupid flesh refuses to let me.
I need to move.
I have to get away.
Yet, the puppet is still held by the strings.
Let it loose.
Cut the cord.
Release me.

Sometimes, you feel like everyone has been controlling you. And sometimes, you have to tell them to let you be yourself. You have to tell people that you are you, not anyone else. This was my way of doing it.
