Request

by April Ardis Anderson
If you ever find me cruel and uncaring
Or often forlorn and overbearing -
Please, set me free.
If you ever find me angry, full of hate
Or down in some dumps that won't dissipate -
Please, set me free.
If you ever find me childish and annoying
Or with your emotions merc'lessly toying -
Please, set me free.
If you ever find me too far under par
Or unable to with you intellectually spar -
Please, set me free.
If you ever find me irresponsible, weak
Or simply not whatever you seek -
Please, set me free.

But if you find that by and by
Those listed above do not apply -
Keep me, keep me....

But never for my sake.
