Confrontation

I divert my eyes from your stare

You throw your emotion around

Your drama is on display

I cower to your demands

Look down at my feet

Just so you might leave me be

Why does the anger of a stranger

Send me into a quivering mess?

Why must I please you?

I should say my piece

I shouldn’t crumble in shame

I have my opinion and pride

I decide to keep the peace

At least that is what’s perceived

Within me is another battle lost
