Nobody Owes


Am I you? Are you me?
Either I am victim
Or you, can’t you see?
Either way, someone has had their way . . .
Now, what if I choose not to pay?
What if I choose not to play?
What if I choose not buy into this scheme
Your dream sacrifice in this nefarious scene?
What if I choose to be
What ever is lovingly in me to be?
Not what you say that I am or what I should take
This terrible gift that you believe that you gave?
The power I choose to be in is mine
And has always been mine through every instance of time
It does not rely on a brother’s smug right
Or his knowledge of mine,
Regardless, I am Spirit, Divine
Am I YOUR victim? I will say it’s not so
That privilege, sir, is not yours to bestow
Do you get part of my life? I do not think so
That, madame, is not your place to go,
Why? Because I say that nobody owes.

Please get over yourself. Get over your pride.
Get over your need to concede and to hide
I ask nothing of you, not your pain nor your pleasure
And leave me to be what is my own endeavour
I am part of the grand scheme of things
As are you.

Look into yourself and you’ll know that its true.

I am all that I am and I’ll show you its so

Get over yourself because nobody owes.
