Defiance

Forever Black effusion

I will not say I am sorry,

I will not break under a minor infraction to your ego

I refuse to be the victim of your judgments singularity of self

I will not say I am sorry,

I will not renounce my opinions

I will not let go of she who I am

For she who you see through the filter of your outdated inference

I will not say I am sorry.

I won’t be made to feel less that human

I will not be eroded by acid statements

I will not be weathered by cold shoulders

I will not say I’m sorry

I will admit to my flaws

I am the sum of my experience

But I will not bend or break

Because you refuse to grow

I will NOT say I’m sorry

I will not be beaten down or broken

By the arrogance of your wanting all of me

For less than the equal value of your value

I will not say I’m sorry

To a petulant vigilante

Sitting on the periphery of importance

Auctioning yourself for acceptance

I will not bow for your approval

I WILL NOT SAY I’M SORRY FOR THIS.
