mine not yours

there is nothing i can give you
that you don't already have
these things you have
entirely within yourself
there all this time for you to claim
what i have within me
is my own
my freedom
my independence
my acceptance
my strength
my resolve
you cannot have them
they are my own
i will not give them up
why would you want mine
when you have your own?
perhaps you see that i possess these things
though i sometimes lack the clarity and confidence
to see them for myself

there is nothing i can give you
so what is it that you want from me?
