"Don't compromise yourself, it's all you've got." - Janis Joplin

Take from me my passion.
Take from me my joy.
Bundle up your wit; gather all your strength.
Tell me what I cannot do; tell me what I’m worth.
It’s your time to decide just what I’m capable of.
Stop. Illuminate; evaluate.
I’m taking back my passion, my joy.
My strength exceeds your whole being.
Only I can limit myself; who are you to decide?
You are not me, no one.
I am worth this; I am capable and I’ll take what I deserve.
You sir, are no longer the voice that echoes inside my head.
