I ain't a puppet!!

I ain't a puppet, and don't wish to be one

This life is mine, I wish to live and have some fun

The way I want to live in city or wilderness 

It ain't anyone's task to see what I don't want to see


I ain't a puppet, so let me be what I want to be

I have my dreams and wishes so help me achieve these

I do wish to help you with your wishes too 

But for that don't bury my dreams and wishes deep


I ain't a puppet for I breathe at my God's will

So let me take hold of the reigns of my life and this ain't disrespectful 

You are certainly my elders whom I love and care

But you should realise I have grown up and past that diaper age


I ain't a puppet so don't treat me like one at your will

Blows after blows over my feelings and emotions

I have suffered a lot since birth, now let me live a little on my own

It's called liberty and freedom which you have enjoyed and don't be mean from restraining me from same


I ain't a puppet for I have a heart, mind and soul

It pains, feels and cries if you try to treat me otherwise

What if you are treated in a similar fashion by someone else

Wouldn't you retaliate and try to break free from such constraints 


I ain't a puppet to be trained to laugh, eat and sit as per your will

I'm a human with my own inclinations and free will to do things

Treating me like a puppet ain't a fun thing for you to do

The day I cut those threads that binds us together, you will look a fool


I ain't a puppet, so stop treating me like one

It ain't being rebellious or I ain't seeking vengeance 

It's my self worth and self respect that I treat you kind

But fear the God who handed me to you, so please be kind

◄ Who am I?

Yes Po, freedom is what I desire, its something I seek, craving whole life long, with every tear into my soul it does creep. Ar times I feel so sorry for myself. People just cant mind their business and they don't just leave me free to live my life.

Just enough my soul screams and cries

Keith, many would have an affinity. People are control freaks, they don't give room to breathe and live.

Thank you so much Hugh for your warm wishes and motivation. In times to come things should change in my favour, I hope.

Elders so often set in their ways
Know no other teachings
Just stand in the way.

Unprepared to listen
Thinking ‘we know it all’
Are truly the saddest of all ‘know it alls’

Be free
