I'll Not Change My Mind

Too many times
It's been changed
By somebody else
For me.

Too many times
Their lies have
Caught me and
Changed me.

Too many times,
I've forgotten
The dreams that once
I had.

I'll not change my
Mind, as too many times
You've changed it
For me.

Too many times
I've wandered the
Lonely paths you said
To tread.

Too many times
I've sung for you
The song that you made
Me sing.

Too many times
I've been ensnared
By your twisting, turning,
Soft words.

And so I'll not change my
Mind, not this time, because
Your power over me
Is broken.

The End
