Your expectations won’t change me

If I look away, it doesn’t mean I don’t notice
if I don’t make it an issue, it never means I don’t have a voice
neither you, nor me are under any compulsion, we both have a choice
I can withstand much much more than all these petty issues
but don’t let my silence give you any wrong clues
frankly I’m done with all your cries and hues
I’m ready to put on my shoes
rather than to let go of your ill intention ruse
how you want to play it’s up to you to choose
as far your expectations for me to change, I plainly refuse

I’m a man of principles, a man of rules
not that weak to seek anyone’s approval
with so much manipulation and betrayal
don’t expect me to consider you my all in all
I’m much more interested in honesty than your mask of portrayal
only if there is genuine acceptance than your defensive denial
I might be able to see the point of your fake rituals
I might be able to see some benefit in these trials
honestly I’ve got better things than dealing with your habitual
I’m ready to put on my balmorals
rather than all your perpetual battles
how you want to act it’s up to you to choose
as far your expectations for me to change, I openly refuse
