Favorite Quote:
I am a princess, all girls are. Even if they live in tiny old attics. Even if they dress in rags, even if they aren't pretty or smart or young. They're still princesses, all of us." -Frances Hodgeson Burnett, A Little Princess
Live in the present, remember the past and fear not the future, for it doesn't exist and never shall. There is only now." _Christopher Paolini, Eldest

We always go through this

What you want
Never what I want
You don’t care

You’re doing what’s best
But I disagree
Because I don’t feel free

Why is it always what you want?
Don’t I have a say?
Why is it always you’re way?

It’s my life
But you don’t care
And that’s something I can’t bear

You shove aside my feelings
Thinking you’re doing what’s right
But it always turns into a fight

You take me away from society
Thinking it’s what needs to be done
Not caring about fun
Or wanting me to have any

You don’t know my dreams
Any I tell, you lie about or dismiss
And so many things I miss

Is it you who’s lying
Or is it I?
Because I really am trying
But I always cry
At some point or other
Because you’re too overbearing
My mother
Even though you say you’re just caring

Whose life is it anyway?
Because I think I’ve lost track
Whose life is it anyway?
If it’s mine, I want it back
Whose life is it anyway?
What can I say?

You’ve taken control
Control you don’t have
Control that is mine
But I continue to spit out
Line after line

Because you think
It is your control
But you’re breaking me down
Link by link.

I wrote this about my mom and how she is so controling. I wrote it when I was mad at her because she wouldn't let me do something or other.
