My Life Is Not Your Kite To Control And Hand It Over To Another Man

You don't get to decide my life for me, you don't get to control it, and then hand the control over to another man.

My life is NOT your kite,
So, you don’t get to decide,
How long, how far, how smooth
I glide.

My life is NOT your kite,
You don’t get to hand over
the spool
And leave it for the next MAN to decide.

My life is NOT YOUR kite,
You don’t get to reel me out
or reel me in
And control my flight.

My life is MY OWN kite,
and only I decide
How long, how far, how smooth
I choose to glide.

You don’t get to decide my life for me, you don’t get to control it, and then hand the control over to another man.
