Shackles off

Shackles off

Where’s the fun in being submissive…
In constantly being stepped on and abused.
Letting others constantly misconstrue the woman that is you…
Fight back.
Don’t let them think you have to be tamed.
Push through the comments and side eyes but let out the outspoken bxtch you’ve always claimed.
To hell with who gets hurt, they never paid your feelings any mind.
It’s your turn, to live for yourself, go out and explore…
You’d be surprised what you find.
Not everyone will say you’re crazy.
Not everyone will say you’re a lot.
Some will appreciate the woman you are with all that comes in your twisted knot.
But first, accept who you are.
A dominant.
A whirlwind of a hurricane.
Be confident.
Stride with pride…run over the inhumane.
For those that are too weak to understand you, will remain…in the dust.
But don’t you dare continue to dim your rainbow of craze to earn their love.
Fxck their trust.
