I Will Never Be Accommodating For You

I will never be accommodating for you.

I will never say what you want me to say,

or do what you want me to do.

I will never listen because you told me to,

or follow orders because you said so.

I’m a woman unto myself,

and part of what that means

is being myself at all costs.

At the risk of being unlovable

At the risk of being hard to stomach

At the risk of being unmanageable

At the risk of being confusing

At the risk of not being the norm

At the risk of not being a “lady”

I will never be accommodating for you.

I will never shrink myself in order to fit within your comfort zone,

because I’m so expansive and transcends all confines.

I will always speak my truth,

because I stand firm in my knowing.

I will always choose to not settle,

because I know my inherent value.

I will always honor myself first,

because I know I’m fucking worth it.

I will never, ever be accommodating for you.

Get used to being uncomfortable.
