belonging to someone else

Tue, 09/23/2014 - 14:48 -- NatBad

We are asked to do right on someone else's terms
To fit, to toe, the examples,
We are slates in someone else's possession
To be cleaned and broken at their desire
We are powerless to our own voice
We are trapped
To dance, to sing, at command
We are monkeys in someone else's cages
To perform and die on someone else's terms
