You don’t need to…

You don’t need to speak for me

I have my own voice,

I understand how to communicate

And who I talk to, is my choice.

 

You don’t need to think for me

I have my own mind,

I understand right from wrong

And I know when you’re being unkind.

 

You don’t need to lead me

I can figure out my own way,

I understand where I must get to

And when you need me to stay.

 

You don’t need to apologise for me

My conscience is clear,

I don’t feel I’m doing anything wrong

And I will not live my life in fear.

 

You don’t need to control me

But you do need to know my loyalty it’s true,

However, if you don’t like how I live my life

Maybe, I should be living it away from you.

Live you life, your way. You don’t need anybody to live it for you. Make your own decisions, your own choices and your own mistakes…

Suki… X!
