No more banging on doors, begging you to let me in
And try and try with all my might
How your heart am I supposed to win?
How can I expect others to respect me
When respect to myself I first must show?
From the first day, I was on my knees
All my pleas, your anger can never cease
The tears drip till the heart bleeds dry
Beg and beg, you are deaf to all cry.
I dance and fail to move to your tune,
With all my energy, I will my feet to move
To all my sweet charm, you are immune,
My self worth to you I shall never prove.
Enough with all my defensiveness,
No more proving my fabulousness,
Time to learn who God made me to be
Pleasing Him is my utmost priority
Take ownership, assume responsibility,
Their anger isn’t your fault, you see?
No more saying yes without thinking for myself
Learning to say no without fear of anger consequence
I am brave, I am strong
I admit I am wrong,
I can learn, I can grow
I can love you healthily
