When I am nice and sweet
compliant and kind
when I give in
I am discounted
I get taken advantage of
when I’m a doormat
I get walked on

When I am difficult
demanding and angry
when I won’t compromise
I am respected and deferred to
I am taken into account
and when I’m most tough
I’m listened to

Must I change what I am
becoming what I don’t
want to be
to get what I need?
