I will not apologize.

I will not apologize.

I will not be made to feel bad for who I am.

This is me.

I stand by me.

I’m proud of me.

I love who I am.

I love fiercely

I give ferociously

I guide rivers of knowledge

I meet everyone with an open heart

I will not be made to apologize for the way I exist

I will not be made to feel bad about the way I can love, or the way I can give…

Or the way I meet with my open heart

My way is to be authentic





If they do not appreciate me

Or if they mean to not take me for granted, but do

They are not welcome to be near

My intimate spaces

I am learning to filter

I’m learning to prism

In ways that do not cause me to be hurt often

And allow me to be who I am

To give what I am meant to give

We are all different

Different needs

Different tastes

Different wants

Different perceptions

I wish them the best

Those who will not know

My intimate spaces
