Good Girl

I`ve tried to listen to the adults.

I felt bad when they would yell

either at me or just in general.

The guilt would make me wish to hide.

Honesty was a virtue

and yet if lying got me out of a lecture…

I was someone who guessed what they wanted.

I tried to be good.

Now as an adult

I am trying to be a good parent

and not put my children through the same crap

that I had to go through.

Instead I have given them other stuff to deal with.

But I am no longer a good girl.

I am a woman

and I won’t put up with your shit anymore!
