you give alibis, all i hear are lies

You may have made me, but you will not break me.  I won’t let you tie my hands to the post.  Because I’ve made up my own mind about you.  Your lies won’t become my truth.  Today, I start my own life.  I make my own decisions.  I declare myself out loud so that I can stand there and be proud of the soul still left in me.  Your mind doesn’t know how to be free and so it clings to all of the insecurity you keep buried deep.  But your fear gives you away.  This time you won’t be able to sway others into believing what allows your ego to stay safe.  This time… I’m looking you in the eyes and calling you by name.
