Tell Me How

Tell me how to act if you must
Tell me how to feel if you must
Tell me how to talk if you must
Tell me what to say if you must
Tell me what to read if you must
Tell me who to love if you must
Tell me what to think if you must
Tell me when to cry if you must
Tell me when to die if you must
But don’t expect me to do anything you tell me to
I won’t love who you want me to
I won’t talk the way you want me to
I won’t read what you want me to
I won’t cry when you want me to
I won’t die when you ask me to
I won’t think what you want me to
I won’t feel the way you want me to
I won’t act the way you want me to
I will be me and only me, and you can’t change that
I am my own person and it doesn’t matter what you want because
This is my story not yours
My words not yours
My thoughts not yours
My life not yours
My mistakes not yours
I’m not a rebel or a fighter but ill rebel against what’s wrong
And I’ll fight for what I think is right
That will never change so don’t try to make it

That was awesome!  It was really deep and strong, I could feel the hurt and pain.  NICE.  I love GLEE and chocolate too.  Wait, is that weird?  Oh well, anyways, amazing job, I loved it.

If you liked this one you should take a look at one of my other poems called The Nightmare of Her Life. I accedentaly posted it annonamusly so it doesn't show up under my work when you look at my profile but its one of my favorite pieces that I've written.
