I Have Changed

I have changed.

I retract my helping hand.

I fight for the right to reclaim my mind.

Shut up and allow me to have a thought that’s not about you.

Don’t bombard me with your wants and needs.

I am my first obligation and you are yours.

You may not drain me of my life just to make yours easy.

You do not love me.

That is clear if nothing else is.

You took all that I had to give -- and then kept taking.

I told you of the toll it was having on me.

No response.

The crushing burden I bear is yours.

You created it. Not me.

I cannot bear it any longer.

So you curse my name.
