I Was Told, I Followed, Yet Whom Did I Do It For?

little lay lay

I was told to trust you

He said don’t

I sat in silence and confusion

I felt alone regardless

I turned away

But found many friends

I spoke up

Yet I'm still quiet


But I can be quiet

I was told to not trust you

He said do

I sat and screamed

But I felt complete regardless

I stayed facing

But lost many friends

I stayed quiet

Yet I spoke up


But I can speak up.

To whom?

  • Comment from author about the poem: I don't hold my breath for anyone and being told to do something and following is a part of my obeying and loyalty mindset, but if I am being held down and always told what to do, my want for freedom will shine through and I will choke. Which is simply why if I am being rushed or asked to do so much at once I say "let me breath" I need that moment to be sane and calm down so I can think and properly help people. In this case I was in the predicament of choosing and I love to compromise and this moment I couldn't and if I can't compromise I simply give up because if I chose one side the other side would be angry. I finally learned you can't please anyone or everyone and I had to make the best decision for me and I am happy.
