"It's for your own good"

he was raised well

he found love

he found work

he found education

he found happiness

his parents told him always

"It's for your own good"

Its always been for his own good

Thats when he lost his love

Thats when he los his education

Thats when he lost his happiness

Thats when he lost his freedom

Thats when he lost his soul

Thats when he lost his will to live

And so he did just that

His parents confused why he did it

They questioned themselves

"What did we do wrong?"

"How could this happen?"

"Who did this to him?"

"Where would we go from this?"

"Why did he do it?"

It was one simple mistake

They did the wrong

Because it was for their own good
