Roles

For a long time
she’d played good girl
roles

Where she did the right
thing, at the right time,
for everyone
regardless of what
she got in
return

She was ashamed
to get into trouble
embarrassed to be considered
inconsiderate or rude
and mortified to
be a burden

The more she was
good
though

The less she
got

The smaller she
became

The more people
expected

With nothing in
return
but judgement,
guilt
blame and
bullying

Is it any wonder
she changed
her role?

Being bad
is saving her from
a life of being
good
