Don’t

Don’t…

shush me
interrupt me
abuse me
mock me
ignore me
push me around
insult me
treat me like a child or an idiot
embarrass me

Don’t…

expect me to sit back quietly and take abuse
treat me like I’m on layaway
underestimate me
think that just because you’re in my world you’re there to stay

Don’t forget…

I am a woman.
I deserve respect.
I should be treated with gentility, kindness, and caring.

Don’t forget…

That I chose to let you in,
And I can choose to close you out.
