That's Who I Am

I don't know how to sit down and shut up.

It's not who I am.

I don't know how to not argue for one side or the other. I don't know how to not stand up for myself, when I feel that I'm justified. I don't know how to not stand up for others, when they need a voice, too.

It's not who I am.

I don't know how to let things go. I don't know how to ignore a situation and pretend it doesn't exist. I don't know how to brush things or people or feelings under the rug. I don't know how to be quiet.

It's not who I am.

I don't know how to accept pleasantries as an answer. I don't know how to deal with feeling pushed aside.

It's not who I am.

Give me words.

That's who I am.
