I reject you.
I am no longer indebted to you for loving me,
back when I didn’t know how to love myself.
I let you beat on me, because I was already beating on me,
and one more wasn’t gonna make no difference.
Until it did.
And now it does.
- Akilah S. Richards

Just tell me how you fucking feel.
I can be changed by what happens to me. But I refuse to be reduced by it.
