Please, let me be, that is my human right to live without you controlling me. I gave
you my heart and head; knowing you are not for me. I relinquished my freedom to
be your prisoner and yet you want more. I submit to your tyranny and yet you still
terrorized me. I have decided to be subservient, and yet that is not good enough. I
am please to be your slave, and you have demanded more. Nothing I gave or will
give to you is good enough, unless you make choices for me. Thus, you own me and
you wish to do as you please; therefore, let me be me.
