They Wanted

They wanted

They wanted to teach me to respect them

But in doing so they made me to fear them

They wanted to teach me to be polite

But in doing so they made me coward

They wanted to teach me to not be overconfident

But in doing so they made me self doubt

They wanted to keep me safe

But in doing so they made me feel like a prisoner

They wanted to make me a better person

But in doing so they made me a bare shell of life
