I Know Who I Am/Defenses

She couldn’t listen.

Wouldn’t, couldn’t, didn’t, tried to have

Could’ve been worse but it needn’t have

I know who I am and

She couldn’t listen, she just

Laughed and shrugged and

Stared off in the distance. How could I have been

So cruel to myself as to

Allow people in my life who disrespect

All of me so casually, I need to build

More defenses, I think.
