Give & Take

©Arwen LeQuieu

I wanted action
He gave it to me
I wanted power
He let me have a little
I wanted control
He taught it to me
I wanted more
and he gave me more and more
I wanted peace
He gave me suffering
I wanted life
He took it out of me
I wanted to let go
He held me firm
I wanted less
He let me have less and less of myself
