No, I Don't Think I'm Below You

No is a word meant for me.

No, it doesn’t bother me

No, don’t speak up

No, you cause too many issues

No, who are you to tell people what is okay?

 

No is a word people use for me.

“No, it’s not okay that my child’s name isn’t in the playbill”

“No, they’re not okay with it”

“No, it was a careless mistake”

“No, as a parent, am I not allowed to be upset?”

 

No is a word meant for me.

No, it bothers me that you called my teacher

No, it’s not okay for you to speak for me

No, you haven’t taken the blame for this kind of thing upsetting me before

No, but don’t you think it’s time I stood up for myself?

 

This poem is about: 
Me
My family
