I was,
formerly quite tolerant
would say yes
and yes
even when my head said no
when my heart felt

I would give in and put out
when put upon,
Frequently & without protest

But now
I have changed
not a pushover anymore
With the bruises that come from
speaking my mind

I am mute no more
no stone either
if squeezed
things will happen.
