    a man once always told me
    how to please
    how to tease
    most often i wanted to cry
    instead of deny
    these feelings i've had
    of an individual mind

    teaching me how to be free
    liberation of the mind
    so blinding is the light
    the truth as bold as the sky

    a man always molded me
    through the things that saw
    and told me that love was raw
    tainted and sublime

    never knowing me
    never a friend to me
    the words fell from his lips so eagerly
    yet so dry and empty and hollow

    I tried to fill the space
    in between every line

    the nature of being controlled
    never to break away from a mold
    became a barrier for me

    unleashing the desires
    that were plaguing me

    I wanted to die
    so overwhelmingly
    i tried to want things that were someone elses pastime
    to be someone i would never become
    someone i could never be like

    i look in myself
    remince and i've felt
    the peace that resides
    knowing that i'm alive

    in my nature
    i am kind
    realistic , futuristic, and beguiled
    awaiting the final hour
    when i possess the power
    breaking away from the chains that held my will to reach higher
    breaking away
