When people say no,
Say yes.
Yes, I can do this,
Yes, I am brave, 
And even if I am afraid,
I will do it.
On my own time
You can not make me do anything.
For I am me
I control myself, not you
I can make choices wether they are selfish or not. 
I can choose what is best for me,
Even if it is not best for you
I can make my decisions 
I am not a child,
Who needs a shoulder to lean on,
I may need it at times
But not now. 
I am redefining myself,
And by doing this I am helping myself
Become the person I want to really become. 
I will be rude at times, brave at times, selfish and blunt,
But that does not mean I have no soul,
I am just protecting the fragile soul
I do have inside, 
Because if no one can reach it, 
They cannot break it.
