I Am My Own

I want to make
          my own
     mistakes, I say.
I want to direct
          my own
     life, as bad as it is.

Please don't try to
          stop me
     I'm going to anyway.
I know you wanna
          stop me
     you care a lot.

I wanna be my own
     my two feet.
I'm a pretty strong
     I can survive.

We keep having
          this same
     conversation over.
I still feel
          this same
     way, as before.
