Poem/Song: Free to Say “No.”


You probably only think I’m weak,

That I’m making you choose,

A choice you don’t want to lose,

You probably only think I’m weak,

But what choice do I have,

I can’t let a man hurt again,

You probably only think I’m weak,

But abuse is abuse, 

He’s starving you of your right to choose,

—–

And every time I think back when,

A man like the one you have,

Hurt me so deep, 

He never heard the word, “No.”

You think that’s just how it goes,

Bu you have a voice,

Sometimes you have to scream loud,

Don’t touch me again,

Don’t come near me again,

Leave me alone,

I deserve better then your abuse.

—–

You probably only think I’m weak,

He’s only hurt you once or twice,

And he apologized,

You probably only think I’m weak,

That I’m just seeing things,

Remembering memories,

You probably on think I’m weak,

But I see how he hurts you,

And that he doesn’t hear you speak.

——-

And every time I think back when,

A man like the one you have,

Hurt me so deep,

He never listened when I said, “No.”

You think that’s the way love goes,

But you have a voice,

Sometimes you have to scream loud,

Don’t touch me again,

Don’t come near me again,

Leave me alone,

I deserve more than your hurt.

——

You probably only think I’m weak,

But I’m trying to help,

Trying to make you see,

You probably only think I’m weak,

But bad becomes intolerable,

So, get up and leave.

You probably only think I’m weak,

But I’ve walked in your shoes,

Let’s both of us run away.

——-

And every time I think back when,

A man like the one you had,

Hurt me so deep,

He never heard the word, “No.”

It’s not the way loveing goes.

But we have a voice,

Sometimes we have to scream loud,

Don’t touch me again, 

Don’t come near me again,

Leave us alone,

Because we are both free

—–

Free to be ourselves

Free to be safe–

Free to say, “No.”
