Take What Is Yours

You can’t be afraid to take what is rightfully yours

take back your autonomy

and show it no mercy

be aware

at a glance

that life will change

that’s a promise

but afraid of change

i am not

today i take back my life

which is rightfully mine

I hope to have the courage someday to declare "today I take back my life".... I have really been a slave of what people say....which is sad....
