Veronica Sierra Lawson
These are a few of the things I've been called.
Is it because I mocked and teased?
Is it because I shouted and hit?
Is it because I made someone bleed?
No I did none of those things.
Rather it is because I said no.
No to adding you on Facebook.
No to being your valentine.
No to giving you my number.
Does that make me rude?
Am I a Brat just because I rather not?
Is it true I am stuck up just for declining?
Is yes really the only way to go?
Even if I say it nicely?
Why can't I reject and still be polite?
Why must my answer always be Alright?
Why can't I decline and still be a friend.
I mean no harm.
I don't mean to hurt.
Yet the moment your mouth opens.
The minute the question is asked.
The only acceptable answer.
The only one you will accept.
