Rule My World

This is my life;
I'm not who I want to be
and where I should be
at this moment in time.


I want so desperately
to be someone else,
to discard this skin
and try on another's.


I thought by now
I would have done more,
my dreams would
have already come true.


I can't repeat yesterday
and reverse the past,
I'm stuck with this life
I've chose to live.


I was free to be whoever,
but fear had other plans;
now I answer to him
and he rules my world.
