Me

Be yourself!

They said.

Speak your truth!

They said.

Alright, I said.

I am me.

I think what I think.

I feel what I feel.

No!

They said.

That’s not how it goes.

Ok, again. I am me.

I think what I think.

I feel what I feel.

A whisper, Don’t you get it?

What?

You can be,

You can think,

You can feel,

As long as it fits.

Fits?

The rules.

Who’s rules?

Puppet master’s.

Puppet master controls,

You obey.

Read the manual.

Study it by heart.

Hmm, I see.

So, I decorated puppet master’s walls with the following words

I AM ME

I THINK WHAT I THINK

I FEEL WHAT I FEEL

I AM NOT A PUPPET

I AM NOT A CLONE

PUPPET MASTER WILL RESPECT THAT

FOR I’M NOT PUPPET MASTER’S PROPERTY

Then I left.

To be who I am,

To think what I think,

To feel what I feel.
