writing as Sapphire Rose

Thomas More lost his head
because he loved his God
more than he loved his king.

You are neither a god nor a king,
just another man, so do not expect me
to sacrifice my life for you.

I have worked too hard
to get to where I am
and I made it here on my own.

Do not think that I need you,
for I can make it fine
all alone.

Do not expect me to change for you.
Do not expect me to wait for you.
You are neither a god nor a king.

My life is mine to live,
not yours to live for me,
so go enjoy your own.
