i sense so much when we talk:

times r hard and it feels like the walls r closing in on u...i can hear it in ur voice;

u long to escape, to escape from all that hurts you and puts u down...i can c it in ur eyes;

u cry out for equality, equality in everything that u do...i can hear it in ur voice;

u just wanna be U and b all U can be, to b urself and not who others want u to b...i can c it in ur eyes; 

u desire acceptance from ur parents, acceptance and not words of hurt bc ur not what they want u to b...i 
can hear it in ur voice;

u ask for trust and responsibility, trust and responsibility when it comes to everyday things that u r restricted 
from...i can c it in ur eyes;

change it up;

the winds of change r coming soon;
a time will b coming when u will b away, away and on your own;
in the wide world by urself u'll b and then real life will begin;
not life sheltered or controlled by parents;

change it back;

i can hear it in ur voice;

i can c it in ur eyes;

all this i sense when we talk.
