A short but meaningful poem about the demeaning perspectives and opinions of the people around me. I specifically wrote this poem based on my struggles with an obsessive and controlling boyfriend. How his words changed me and how I started to believe him instead of myself.

A Dream Deferred

 

He says you can't

I say I can

 

He says you don't

I say I do

 

He says you won't

I say I will

 

But over time his words repeated

And everytime I began to believe them

 

Now

 

He says you can't

I say I can't

 

He says you don't

I say I don't

 

He says you won't

I say I won't
