Prove It

God knows what’s going on in my home and in my mind,

That’s why I can’t find a single reason to prove myself to anyone,

Unless I choose,

My personal opinion is that I lose if I let someone have that much control over me,

Why should I spend my time, my thoughts, my energy, to prove something to someone else?

Prove to you I’m a good person,

Prove to you I’m cool,

Prove to you how much money I have,

I am who I am I don’t have to prove that!!!

    A wonderful poem filled with self-confidence. You don’t need to prove yourself to anyone. None of us should have to do that.

    This speaks to me because it is the eternal problem facing marginalized people of all types. In addition to being at the mercy of whatever ISM makes us marginalized, we are often faced with the demands of the people putting us in that position, to prove our worth. All so that some wealthy and/or entitled little Karen, Dick or Harry can feel good about themselves. Umph.
