I Refuse

Hi guys, I could not turn in for the night without getting this poem out of my head. Hope you like it!

I refuse to be still

As you seek power over my will

I refuse to be quiet when there’s so much to say

Can’t stay silent another day

I refuse to be the victim

So that kind of thinking

I’m definitely changing

I refuse to do nothing

When I know I can do something

I refuse to accept mediocrity

As this limits who I can truly be

I refuse to let you steal my joy

Playing with it like some sort of toy

I refuse to give your negative words meaning

It’s my happiness you’re intent on stealing

I refuse to believe the lies you’ve told

In an effort to corrupt my soul

I refuse to be anyone but me

Because even in my imperfection

My life still has direction

So long as I have purpose

I will continue to focus

So you do you

And I’ll do me

In the end

I will still be free.

 

Thanks for stopping by. 🙂
