I was mad at someone and instead of getting in a fight with that person I walked away and wrote this. I was really mad and I still am.

You want my respect, You want my trust
However, you won’t get it until I get some back
I’ll not be your slave
You can’t tell me what to do
Ask, pled, and cry for me to listen
But I won’t
Not to you
Someone who tries to tell me how to live my life
It’s mine, so back off
You have no right to tell me how to live
You had your chance to live life and messed it up
So don’t try to do the same to me

I can feel your anger reading this BUT I am glad you wrote it instead of saying or yelling it to the person.
Well written

Thank you. I came pretty close to doing just that instead of sitting down and writing this.
Peace & Love Casey
