I will not shut up. I will not bite my tongue. I will not walk on eggshells just so you can feel better. You cannot quiet me at your request. I am not yours. I am not your girl. You should be thankful I allow you a place in my life. You will not silence the thoughts I have, my opinions, you will not silence me. This is not me being selfish but reclaiming my right as a person. I will stand tall before you and you will cower with fear at the thought of me breaking your heart with the heel of my biting wit. Don’t test me.
