Treasure Island

Feisty


What I look like is more important than what I do
If I were to get raped would it be my fault too?
so I can't object to being a sex object
no I won't tolerate the blatant disrespect
if i were to speak up for myself, I make too much noise
if i didn't, i'm considered typical and weak by choice
Am I not to have love for myself as if it's unnatural
is the problem you can't handle a persona thats feral?
and if i were to get married, it won't be a trap
and them lies you've carried, don't get slapped
I believe in being independent and free of confines
why should the life I've chosen to live, be a crime?
is it because I've chosen to not take a backseat?
with or without someone to love, I'm still complete
I have the power to run my own show
I have value, I have worth, and i know
anyone who opposes me
have the green light to go

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
