The summer after graduating from college, I met this guy. He was a good person, but there was always something about the way he spoke to me and the way that he watched me speak to him. He was judgmental and stubborn. It felt like he wanted me to be something I couldn’t. He’s no longer a part of my life…and I’m more me than ever before.
i could tell that he wanted to mold me
but he didn’t seem to know
that i was less like clay
and more like stone
see it’s not that i am hard
or that i am cold
but i know who i am
i won’t just do as i’m told
