I am a prisoner by choice,
I let my jailers break me every twilight,
I let my jailers break me every twilight, never protesting!
I allow myself to be broken,
I allow myself to be broken, moulded
I allow myself to be broken, moulded and then broken again...
Nod in acceptance though it was no fault of mine!
Ridiculed and laughed at,
Ridiculed and laughed at, only because I have a 'different' mind than all!
Felicity becomes weakness,
Felicity becomes weakness, dreams turn grey...
A taunt for a morsel I willingly barter,
Hushed even before words dare to leave my tongue!
Come sunrise you'll still find a smile plastered to my face,
I am afterall a prisoner by choice!
