They Want Me To Follow Instructions



They want me to follow instructions
Like I’m some sort of child
They want me to have fear in my voice
They want me to not smile
They want me to listen to everything
Every little word they say
They want me to follow instructions
But I shall say, “No Way!”
To give up all my liberties
And become a mental slave
Is something that I shall not become
My relentlessness shall not wave
Undoubtedly doubtful
Yet inside I have too much pride
The lion’s roar is mute today
But the heart of the beast is still inside
Remove the shackles from my mental
Let my words become the swords that stab deep
They want me to follow instructions
But I want my soul to be free

“Sometimes we let others imprison us mentally……. Once a mind is imprisoned hope may seem so far away… Don’t allow yourself to become a mental slave to others.” –Monica Renata
