YOU LIVE FOR ME✊🏾
Let’s play a game …
We’ll call it ‘my life through your eyes’.
I just want to live. I just want to be free.
But I can’t …
Stuck in between what would “they” think and what would “they” say.
In fear … I halt.
I live my life for you.
For your approval …
For your judgment …
For your entertainment …
No credits. No fees.
I unknowingly, in fear, allow you dictate my life like you own it.
But in reality… you don’t!
I second guess my every move,
As you break my back with words;
And hurt my ears with mockery.
But wait …
There’s a twist.
I’ve your attention.
I’ve got your gaze on me.
So while you think you police me, you imprison yourself in my life and forget yours.
Though I may fall and you laugh,
At least I fell…moving, while you remain still;
Caught in a show that I direct.
In the end …
You’re my slave.
You live for a gaze that I create.
Basically … You live for me✊🏾
