Which Voice?

In English, we have a choice
Between the active and passive voice
'I am in control' is on the go
'I am not being controlled' is rather slow

A person who is not addicted
Would see themselves clearly depicted
As not being controlled, the passive voice
That’s how they’d see it, if they had the choice

[Hata Bildir]
