All I Want (Jedi Angst)

For the past 10 years
I’ve been going through my Jedi training
But it hasn’t seemed clear
Just where to turn
When Master Obi-Wan doesn’t trust me
And how can I learn
In a world like that?
One where I’m always being held back

And all I want
Is not to be seen as a pitiable child
And all I want
Is to be taken seriously for a while
But that’s not what you want
So you bring down all of my lessons and
It’s not what you have done
When you try to run all my life

And all the while
I’m running errands for the Council
But they won’t let me take my trial
And it’s all because
They’re just jealous of the promise I’ve shown
Despite that I’m so young
But why is that bad?
I’d prove myself if only given the chance

And all I want
Is not to be seen as a pitiable child
And all I want
Is to be taken seriously for a while
But that’s not what you want
So you bring down all of my lessons and
It’s not what you have done
When you try to run all my life

And all I want
Is not to be seen as a pitiable child
And all I want
Is to be taken seriously for a while
But that’s not what you want
So you bring down all of my lessons and
It’s not what you have done
When you try to run all my life
