For Your Own Good

Signing the papers

Sending you

Out the door

Out of the

Protective nest

You entered

Only a year before

.

You don’t understand

They want you back!

The ones

Who told you to leave

.

“Life like this

Doesn’t suit you”

Because

Of that

You need to return

Be what you used to

.

It is not a sacrifice

It is my duty

To give you back

Your life

.

.

But what if I

Don’t want it

What if I was happy

To be rid of such a life

Why are you forcing

What you think would be good for me

Onto me

.

I left that life

And came here

It wasn’t

A drop of status

I wasn’t

Abandoning

My dream

I was choosing

To live my life

In a place

Where the box

Was closed shut

On all sides

Except the bottom

.

I fell through the bottom of the box

Out of the sky

And landed here

Where I will

Stay

.

~

.

“So sorry,

I will have to decline

Your kind offer,

I’m quite happy now,

So leave me be.”
