Only If I Feel Justified

I am the exception to my own rules made to apply.
And I may break them with the making of mistakes.
I am not afraid to admit this.
But that is not to say,
Your promises made to me to break...
Are rules you have made you expect me to follow.

That is not the kind of relationship I am going to have,
With you to do as you please...
To hear you tell me I don't live up to your expectations.
I may break my rules only if I feel justified to do so.
I have determined you are not that justification.

We all break the rules of the heart, some to regret it. A good write.
