Told What To Do

We are just constantly

Told what to do

By the government

And by society

By our teachers

And by our parents

My bones are aching

I’m so tired

Of being everyone’s puppet

Being told how I should dress

How I should feel

What I should think

They tell me what career I should pursue

Even though that is not what I want

They tell me what I should say

Because it’s impolite to speak your mind

Stop telling me what to do

Because I don’t want to hold you responsible

When I regret my choices

Let me do what I choose to

Let me pursue MY dreams

Even though you think you’re protecting me

You’re actually controlling me

And I’m tired of it

The more you try to push me towards you

The more I try to pull away

I’m done being the worlds puppet

I’m done being

Told what to do

It can just tiring being forced to do what everyone else thinks is “right.” I just want to find my own way even if I do stumble and fall. I just want the chance to do what I want with my life not what people want me to do because sometimes it just gets suffocating and I feel trapped.

“There are always risks in freedom. The only risk in bondage is breaking free”

“Why do you stay in prison when the door is so wide open?” – Rumi
