Control Poem by Cece Winters

Control

Rating: 4.5


They say you can only control your own actions
But what happens when a loved one does things you don't like?
How do you learn to tolerate them?

They say you can only control your own actions
But what happens when a loved one does things you don't like?
You have these crazy yet lame ideas, yet I find myself letting your actions affect me?

They say you can only control your own actions
But what happens when a loved one does things you don't like?
One night you decided to go on a joy ride (pause) to a supermarket. Really?

They say you can only control your own actions
But what happens when a loved one does things you don't like?
You went to a special place with your friends. But it was our special place.

They say you can only control your own actions
But what happens when a loved one does things you don't like?
I find myself feeling alone and vulnerable, seeking attention wherever I can get it.

They say you can only control your own actions
But what happens when a loved one does things you don't like?
I just wanted someone to talk to, someone that would put me first. At least I got what I felt I needed.

They say you can only control your own actions
But what happens when a loved one does things you don't like?
You come back home and that is when you are full of talk
Wondering why am I being distant to you.
When you're the one that treated me that way for those precious few hours.

They say you can only control your own actions
But what happens when a loved one does things you don't like?
You say that I do not understand. That something must be wrong with me.
Maybe there is but, that's how I feel.

I control my own actions. You control your own.
I handle my feelings in a way that I believe everyone gets what they deserve.
But they say you should be nice in order to receive nice.
But for this loved one, that is never the case.
Therefore, I will forever hold my silence.
