Endless Disatisfaction

It's not hate that I have for you Nor is it love I don't feel you hold me You only continue to shove I've grown up with you not around Now you refuse to believe it could be true My life moved on whether you were there or not I didn't stop growing because of you Inside me now I only feel a passion mixed with pain Showing you that I'm not who you think I am at all I want to prove to you that I'm not as little as you make me out to be I too can stand up proud and tall My Dearest Lord will protect me from your emotional blows I no longer have to feel less I'll walk away from your negativity with my head held high I only ask my Lord for you to be blessed Your satisfaction can no longer feed from my tears or insecurities I'll bow gracefully and walk away All the fighting, frustration, and disagreeing You still expect me to stay? I thought I'd be able to come to you when I was down That was only me being a fool My only mistake was to think you could understand When the whole time you only told me I was full of bull You've shattered my hopes so that you could feel superior All so you could be right Guess what? I'm not here to challenge your authority I'm here to live, not to fight I am who I choose to be, you don't approve? Simply leave me be The more you push and prod The more I only want to be free I guess I'll never be who you want me to be, but I've learned I can only be one person, to be happy with who I am No thanks to you I will turn out to be an exhilarating woman In my heart I feel this That is what lets me know I will make it through your cruelty No matter how low the blow Inspired by: My Father
