    At One Time Maybe

    I felt like I was someone property a few times when I was in abusive relationships.  I felt that I wasn't worth anything to anyone during those times.  I was constantly reminded that only that person would have me.  When I finally found that I was not the property...

    I Belong to Me

    We don't really really belong to anyone, do we? Even our lives are only on borrowed time. And the best thing we can do is allow someone to share their lives with us, the same way we can share our lives with them.

    Nahnah! Wtf Are You Doing? I Don't Think So.

    Back off. You can't walk into my life like you never left. What am I to you? A toy? Something you have rights to, no matter what you've done? I'm not your friend, I'm not your plaything. I'm not something you own. You made a mess and I spend a good amount of life cleaning it up...

    No one will own me except

    for me. I will be my only owner. My husband will not control me, my parents do not own me. I am simply put mine. You see many people treat people of the female persuasion as objects, I am no object. I may be in a relationship with you but I am not yours. You see if I am to be...

    I can not be owned but you can own my affection.

    I am not a slave, I listen and then do what I please I am not yours I am my own, I just let your arms hold me For I am but a soul with skin and bones, but I am not your property.

    You Can't Chain Me...

    I am nobody's chained slave and I don't have a cruel Master who paid to use me as he wishes. I choose to love people, I am never forced or coerced by threats. No person should live in tortured slavery.

    Hate Control Freaks

    Every single man I have ever been with it was always the same damn thing. They thought I was their property that I was a possession to be owned and controlled. I'm sick of it. I am not your property I only belong to myself.

    Of Course I Am. ...

    Of course I am. We all should be as well. Why let someone else dictate on who we should be and how we should live. We are born individuals and unique. Let yourself shine through and be who you are.

    I don't take well to anyone i'm dating attempting to control me or telling me what to do a t  a l l. Honestly, besides being overly-complimentary/too clingy thinking you have any right whatsoever to tell me what I can or can't do is the fastest way to make me tired of you...
