I Respectfully Decline

To be what you think I should be
Your definition of poetry
I’m sorry 
But I respectfully decline

Write like Shakespeare, Frost or Angelou
Emulate what all other poets do
I’m sorry
But I respectfully decline

Copy, pretend or try to be
Anything other than Kimberly 
I’m sorry
But I respectfully decline

Live my life by what others say
Change any part of me today
I’m sorry
But I respectfully decline
