Because You Don't Understand
I know that I am young, and so are you,
but don’t look at me through the prism of youth.

I know that I am human, and so are you,
but don’t expect me to act the same as you.

Listen to the words I speak, don’t wait for what you want to hear.
Accept me as I am here, don’t influence me with your anger and fear.

Just because I speak to you, does not make as friends.
Just because I smile, doesn’t mean I will take your hands.

Just because I do things with you, doesn’t mean I’m on your side.
Just because you stop on my way, doesn’t mean I will take that ride.

The way you are trying to press on me with your issues and your lack of thought,
shows me that you have no respect for me, for my health, my life and my lot.

Yes, I was looking at you, but it doesn’t mean that I think of you.
Yes, I was looking at you, but it doesn’t mean I want to be like you.

No, I will not agree with everything you say or do.
No, I will never do all the things I do, just for you.

Don’t speak to me, I don’t want to hear your voice.
Don’t tell me how to live, because it’s not your choice.

Don’t pry on my life, you were never invited to enter it.
Don’t drag me into your private life, I was never part of it.
