Manipulated

Manipulated

Humanity unchanging.
Desire to please, forced task rearranging.
Manipulations, control, personality depleting.
Unhealthy, relationship defeating.
To believe thy quality is pure.
A dream with much allure.
Abolishing most self doubt.
Fantasy, without merit, identity rout.
Day begins anew.
Communication askew.
So hopeful before.
Down on myself once more.
