No need for repetitious beatings, not anymore

It’s not feasible to continue, not anymore

Not funny to cry your heart out, alone

not anymore

Enough to hope endlessly,

without clear cut promises, not anymore

It’s unbecoming to be branded as feeble-minded and dense

sometimes but not always

Stand up straight. Heads up.

One step backward but two or more steps forward

With conviction and much bravado,

not jelly-kneed, no qualms

So courageous and full of love of one’s self

Declaring to the world…not anymore
