#nofilter

Location

/slap/

 

put down your leg

 

/glare/

 

don’t make

that face

 

smile

 

lower your tone

 

are you angry?

stop

 

ladies are nice

ladies are sweet

ladies speak softly

and are well-mannered

and poised

 

i am not a lady

 

don’t get me wrong

be a lady

if you want

but don’t make me

struggle

against something I’m not

 

I cry out when I’m mad

swear when I’m not

(i’m working on it)

I’ll shout

because I can

and will say it as it is

 

but most importantly,

I am myself

unfiltered

through and through

 

i’ll sit with my leg up

i’ll grimace

just for fun

i’ll SHOUT

when i’m feeling

and be MAD

because i CAN

 

i’ll embrace every moment

and emotion

to the fullest

 

because that’s just me

and i’m not ashamed

Me
