Paper Doll

An old poem of mine about trying to break out of a controlling relationship and be myself.

Paper Doll

I may be little and cute
But I can make up my own mind
I don’t need you
To pick out my clothes
Or tell me how to do my hair
I can decide where I want to be
Who to see, why, where and when

I’m not a child
Or your personal pet
I’m not your paper doll
To cut up and dress

Don’t pat my head
And send me on my merry way
I hate that you
Try to control my every move.
I need to speak my own mind
And I don’t always agree with you.
Let me be myself, love me as I am.

I’m not a child
Or your personal pet
I’m not your paper doll
To cut up and dress

Just walk away
It is past time for us to part ways
I can’t have you
Always telling me what to do
I can’t believe I stayed so long
I need to; I want to live my own life
Time for me to find myself, be myself.

I’m not a child
Or your personal pet
I’m not your paper doll
To cut up and dress.
