Written in January 2019. My response after being consistently coerced to re-enter a studying opportunity that triggers anxiety, depression, insomnia and panic attacks.

Surface šŸŒ¢ Cut

Don't hold me to a promise that

Don't hold me to a promise that my heart can never keep,

Don't leave me with an emptiness

Don't leave me with an emptiness I have to feed in sleep.

The pantomime you've chosen is

The pantomime you've chosen is the one I can't withstand.

I'm not your marionette who bows

I'm not your marionette who bows before your swift command.

No more of all the puppet strings

No more of all the puppet strings that tie me to your door.

I'll chase the dreams that call me to

I'll chase the dreams that call me to a fate I can't ignore.

If standing up for what I love

If standing up for what I love will break this pleasant spell.

Then let it be, for if I must

Then let it be, for if I must I'll gladly walk through hell.

END Thank you for reading. Please remember that you have every right to make your own life decisions, and they should be respected. šŸŒ¢ Ann Sepino (annsepino.mystrikingly.com)
