Farista Sairuv

I'm Deferential, Just Not to You

It’s me.

I don't belong to myself but

I absolutely do not belong to you

I will not should not and will not belong to you

And there's no use in telling me to live

When whoever I belong to doesn't want me to

I'm too much of a coward to die

I'm not denying that fact

But goddamn it

I can run with that
