Sometimes things are not easy
Tough choices to make
Difficult obstacles to overcome
People you have to like

And it never seems to make a difference
What option I choose
Because it comes to the same conclusion
I picked the wrong one

They reprimand me 
For the things I cannot control
Things I couldn't contain
But they blame me anyways

I tire of what my life holds for me
Tire of the decisions I am forced to choose
I don't want influence
I want guidence

But if influence is all I get
Then let me decide
Don't choose for me
Let me choose for myself

So parents and teachers
Friends and strangers
Leave me be
I dont want your advice

I don't want what you try to give me
I only want peace and sanity
Try to understand
I need to be alone

So I say that I love you 
With all of my heart
But I leave you now

    I understand your feelings, and in a few years you will get what you are asking for. the people in your life are loving you the best way they know how!!! better to be loved than to be neglected.....
