Don't Pull Me Down // by LaTaeya W. (July 2015)

Don't tell me that I can't,
Before I've gotten the chance to try
Don't try to bring me down,
Only because you don't want me to fly
Don't try to make me feel hollow,
Just to try to feel faultless and whole
Don't put yourself up on a throne,
To make me seem like a peasant
Don't belittle me,
For the purpose of self-satisfaction
But most of all, don't make me feel inferior,
Just because it might seem like the best to feel superior
