TRAPPED, by Cleo Adamou.

Wish you could see things through my eyes,

You'll never know the tears I've cried,

Sit alone and I wonder,

Why do you proceed to steal my thunder,

Mother dear, I have a mind of my own,

At 23 you should see I'm fully grown,

Long for a life outside these constraints,

Just for one day could you loosen the reigns?

Sometimes I'm so claustrophobic I can't breathe,

But you can't see through the smile,

That really I'm gritting my teeth whilst I seethe,

What can I do to make you trust me?

Or do you want me to grow old, alone and rusty?

So what I'm meant to follow the 'rules'?

Whoever wrote them, surely fools,

I want to live and learn don't you know,

That's what people require in order to grow,

All of what I do is to make you proud,

But I'm stuck in silence,

Too scared to think aloud,

What if you could hear my thoughts now?

Would you care?

Or would it amount to a row?

Missing out on normal things people do,

While you sit back pretending not to have a clue,

I'm not sorry that things never worked out,

Should have allowed me to figure what life is really about,

Stop pushing me to my limits,

Sooner or later you'll have to permit it,

One day I'll stop giving a shit
