"The Censor"

stifle my feelings   
tell me what I can think    
amend my beliefs to fit your own    
control my words with your raised fists    
remove my logic    
suppress my truth with  your denial    
protect your illusions by overpowering reality    
create your stories that rewrite history    
pout and threaten and yell the loudest   
edit and cut until I don’t exist
