I refuse

My dignity MUST remain intact while i conceal my lack of tact i will still trust my instinct to give up my “pleaser” stint So in this particular instance i CHOOSE to stay firm in my stance against all this negging going on Just give over with the egging on I simply refuse to oblige Your offer to indulge in the tussle and rumble inside a mud pen rife in grumble I'll have to turn down for now I just cannot afford, to allow you, to nudge me into reacting. From the way you keep on acting i can tell you are really itching to rip off all the stitching where my heart was lacerated the heat from your hatred Is rather daunting for me your words to this day, haunting me Yet I refuse to be deterred from my path, I won't be deferred I'm intent on being true to my nature i won’t hand you the aperture to have me for your scapegoat I won’t let you lay the base coat to better showcase my unraveling Your actions are rather revealing. they clearly show ill intention I refuse to give that any attention I'd sooner revel in my newfound peace build back my resilience by the piece Soon, i will find a home for my presence worthy of my energy and essence I CHOOSE to align with values, that reflect the importance of compassion and respect
