Tell It!

Oops! Did I offend someone?
________________
.
No, I don’t care about
My reputation
Biased observations
That go around.

Fragile birdie flew away
Because I had to say
The – My – truth
Is that all it takes?

My Scorpio nature
Won’t coddle a stranger
I won’t coddle family either
It’s just not who I am.

I won’t take your shit
You need to handle it
Take responsibility
I will do the same.

Don’t like it?
Then don’t come around me
I deal in authenticity
Fulllll Stop.

And No,
I’m not afraid
Of the things you might say
To the community.

I know who I am
I know where I stand
And I will not dance around
Your sensitivity.

For what it’s worth
I will reflect my truth
So you can take a look at you
And I will keep looking at me.
