I Am.

He says I’m “difficult”

because I say what I want,

because I don’t ask his permission.

He says I’m a “bulldog”

because I do what I want,

because I don’t ask his permission.

He says I’m a “child”

because I want my own space,

because I don’t ask his permission.

I am difficult

because I say what I want,

and I don’t ask his permission.

I am a bulldog

because I do what I want,

and I don’t want his permission.

I am a child

because I want my own space,

and I don’t need his permission.

I am powerful.

because I believe in myself

and I give myself permission.
