No Shrinking Violet by Marcela M.

author: Marcela M.

Your big box ways

Cannot shrink wrap Me

into a submission

that makes you comfortable

with who you think I Should be!

I am not here,

to provide you with comfort

Au contraire!

I am here to make you squirm;

For I am Not neat and tidy

a packaged femme of your oppressive vision!

I am every single woman

You ever abused;

Suffocated in your shrink wrap world,

and I have come Undone,

you Cannot, wrap me back up!

I am messy and I am Loud;

I will regurgitate your vileness

and spit it back at you

with a clarity so undeniable

that it will shatter your frozen soul

for you know it, to be the Truth!

I am all of them, every single one!

and you Cannot win

with mere cling wrap,

for I am No shrinking Violet!
