one of the seven sins

blamed on people with thin skin

"you never said it wasn't okay"

while they trample over you on their way

but what about your anger?

why is it so easy to slander

your dignity as you stand there

trembling with a friendly stare

society said: “it’s impolite to rage":

so all you can do is smile, caged

watching as they rise at your expense

holding your tongue against better sense

painted glass, they portray you as a saint

your lips shut tight, in case you deign

to speak up. i feel bad, i'd rather not.

so before you call them out, you stop.

“it’s okay”, “actually, i don’t mind”

you say these words when it’s not fine

when what you really want to say is taboo

a quick and simple,

“f*** you"
