As the rain falls
And more clouds gather
I remember the lies I was told!
How my dreams they shattered
My dad… my dad told me one thing
My mom she told me another
Voices from so many directions
It’s my decision so I didn’t bother
I was so pissed off…
I was filled with rage
How could my parents not listen?
That my life was in an unusual stage!
I wanted freedom…
I wanted a chance to prove my worth
To make something of myself
Prove my place on this earth
My dreams was just the start
What I had planned was grand
But how can I make my parents listen
How can I make them understand??
I am but a mere man
Wanting the chance to amaze the world
With what I have in store for them
How can I be ignored?
I had big dreams… really huge…
How can I be denied the stage?
I felt like I was being held back
Kept away from the world, locked in a cage…
Can no one pay attention?
To my needs, my big ambitions
Why keep me away from the possibilities
Isn’t that my decision?
My dreams…. My dreams
Lost in the sea of misery
Forever out of my reach
Some people might say it was a horrid destiny!
