I Won't Be Controlled Poem by Alexie Whitman

I Won't Be Controlled

Rating: 5.0

I always did what I was told

Never made a move that was too bold

I always listened to what everyone had to say

But never could make out my own way

Always stuck to the status quo

Been always controlled like a robot from head to toe

I lived by the standards of the world

Just to be at least loved?

I don't think all of this was worth this fake "Perfect Life"

Because I need to be happy to at least survive

But I know that I can make a change

And for that I need to break out of these chains

It's time to make the "Bold Move"

Because this colorless life is what I disapprove

Now I will make everyone hear me

And this boring life...was never my cup of tea

I am done solving other people's problems

Because that made me put my life to the bottom

The people of this world only care about wealth

So now I am gonna start listening to myself!

This is your life so do whatever you wish to do; listen to your heart and follow your dreams! Never ever let anyone else control you!

Being controlled like a robot isn't what life is about. Please make your own choices and don't let this life go to waste. Love the poem, the rhymes are adorable and the selection of words is great...It just describes everything in such a unique and creative way. GOOD JOB!

Brave utterances set aside for honest reflection. An insightful introspective poem nicely embellished with poetic rhyme and rhythm.
