Understand This


I am an amazing person

I am interesting

And funny

And loving

And one of the most deeply empathetic people you will ever meet

And if you think for a second that you didn’t miss out on much, you are so wrong. 

The words from my mouth have brought entire audiences to tears both from joy and sorrow

I have done and can do amazing things

I will do all this and more for the rest of my days

I don’t need to justify my existence to you

I am already legitimate

I am already spoken for

And I will not be bid off like some antique chair

I am bought and paid for

And, honey, I'm not selling
