My Own Space

Within the cage of your expectations 

My heart is entrapped 

Longs to be free of your mind games


All my heart desires is a place 

To call it’s own 

Where it can roam unchained 


My needs are quite simple a 

Rented room will do

Anywhere I can call my own 


Where you cannot follow 

Seek to stifle 

My independent thinking

Stepping off The Merry-go-round Is Only The Beginning

When I was sixteen I went to live

With my grandparents

Willingly stepped off my parents 

Merry-go-round

Yet my world didn’t stop spinning

The Consequences 

Of my parents choices continued 

To annoy me still

Even today many years later my 

Heart still isn’t free

Of the pain inflicted so long ago
