Back to My Prison of FearA Poem by MusicLove93
Just one of my rants. Not a poem really
I can't be perfect all the time.
In fact, I can't be perfect at all.
Yet, you always expect me to be that perfect little angel you wish I was.
Just because I'm not saying anything,
Doesn't mean I'm thinking up a lie.
I'm quiet because I know just how mad you get when just the right words aren't said.
I'm not the daughter you think I should be.
I make mistakes, but they will only help me learn.
I may not always tell the truth,
But that doesn't make me bad.
I may be 18, but I'm not an adult,
But I am definitely no child either.
I'm more than capable of knowing right from wrong,
But I won't always choose what's right in your eyes.
Instead, I will choose what I believe is best for me, not for you,
and I will deal with the consequences myself.
I'm sick of living in fear of your disappointment,
But I know I may never leave your grasp.
I can try to live my own life,
But you will always find a way to pull be back in.
Back to my prison of fear.
The fear of your disappointment.
Your knowledge and your anger.
The fear of you.
Nothing I do is ever just right.
Always, something is wrong,
Out of place, or askew.
You criticize without any disguise.
Your anger flows all too freely.
When I will finally find the courage to escape your clutch, I may never know.
I just pray it is soon.
For, my patience is soon running thin.
You're controlling and manipulative,
And you cease to listen if things aren't going your way.
You make assumptions without explanation.
Then let what you assume become fact,
Never pausing to check your answers.
Nothing is ever alright with you
Unless it was thought up by you.
