Keep your cudgels

Photo by Sachin Bharti on

I don’t need some new eye color

Nor do I need to grow taller

I don’t need a new self-help fad

Or start some quaint new religion

Nor move to some exotic island

Don’t need to be more understanding

I don’t need to become more empathetic

I really don’t need to fit in or out

Don’t need to gain or lose weight

Or fit someone’s else’s preferred image

I certainly don’t need thicker skin

I don’t need to be changed- or abused

I need to be accepted. as is, as I have

Most notably, I need to be … respected
