Child Am I?


I am not allowed to speak

to have a conflicting thought

Comform must I

because I am a child in your eyes


Yes, I know nothing of life

I am no fool

but instead of learning

I bend only to your rules


So must I lie

To live MY life?

Or else be hung out

Left to dry?

or else be hung out?

left to dry?
