Prying Eyes.

Your prying eyes,
Your penetrating gaze.
Your deep voice,
Pouring gasoline on the blaze.
You overpower
Merely because you can.
Years and years and years
Of deep-seated manipulation,
Sowing seeds of discord
Wherever you go.
You rule with an iron fist,
While I turn the other soft as down cheek.
Just because your voice is louder,
Your body stronger,
Doesn’t make you invincible.
It doesn’t make you right.
I am strong on my own —
My voice deserves to be heard.
I will sing until my lungs burst —
I will stretch myself to the tippy top of the skies
Just so I can gaze down upon
Your prying eyes.
