How I Must Live

They told me to live as they did

but i knew not on how to live

how do i live as life of others?

when my life can hardly be lived alone

so they told me to take control

again i ponder with a question

how do i take control when control isn't within my hands?

i have no control i answer.

so they told me live life to the limit-

there i cut of thy sentence of 'they'

i will not comfort your opinoin nor yoursuggestions

i would let life be lived and live it as it is.

i will contol my life not with my hands but by heart.

i will take risk when nessecary for i shall not take what they say.
