...time goes by

you've dictated me long enough
I'm finished giving you status
I'm done feeling how you feel
depressed, watched, unloved, fake

you've cost me relationships
you've cost me happiness
it's time i become my own person
and not your clone

if I'm left friendless-so be it
if everyone hates me-so be it
I've stopped caring
i only want out if this

go ahead and spread the rumors
go ahead and turn the school against me
I'll recover
I'll get through it

i know I'm better than that.


The author's comments:
this is part two to my other poem, '...But Nothing Changes'. i guess it's about breaking away from that group of people and being your own person instead of allowing others to choose who you are.
