I stood up for me. And I shall maintain my peace and sanity.
Yes I stood up to you, and I am standing up to them all.
I was serious when I said that I am intentional.
Don’t feed me patronizing breadcrumbs,
my taste has changed and
I’m on a special diet.
Let me be I am free
and I have found my voice
how dare anyone expect me to be quiet?
It took a series of events
for me to enter a spiritual awakening.
To be honest, I didn’t expect it.
I was trying to leave this earth
because I felt as though I had no worth.
But now I see things differently.
I stood up to you
and all you’s that I have allowed
to impact my peace and sanity.
I stood up to you because I am standing up to them all,
and I am nobody’s victim.
Don’t ask of me to wait around
as I detox years of toxicity out of my system.
I played a major role in my chaos.
No more begging for pity
I turn down that superficial camaraderie.
You seek to be a part of me
so long as I am parched, you see
reality is that you have never truly known me.
You would think that someone who once walked around in a boisterous manner would have no problems standing up for themselves, but this isn’t always the case. I can honestly say that for years I placed the needs of others before my own, and I did this so much that I lost myself. Only being able to validate your worth through the perceptions of others is a miserable existence.
Standing up for myself to maintain my peace and sanity.
This looks like many things, and it can display oddly to anyone who doesn’t benefit from my healthy boundaries. Or after spending time lost in reflections of how my plans with friends or family members didn’t quite go as expected. I wrote a poem about it recently, “Insanity Get Away From Me!”
