All On My Own - Poem by Desiree Whitamore

i'm fine on my own
i'm strong and independent
i won't fall or give up
there's no room for dependence.
no one can tell me what i can or cannot do
i have to figure it out
i'll always face the truth
superficial beings
fake lips and breasts
i don't need that.
i'm happy contributing less.
so don't EVER tell me that i need you
don't EVER say that i'm fine
don't EVER think all those things
running around in your mind
'cuz i don't need you
i'm fine being me
theres too much at stake here
how about letting me be?
