It Began as a Stroll

It began as a stroll

both hand in hand

until she said no,

taking a stand


He turned to her face

and yelled some rude words

She knew right away

the man was absurd


Confident now

about the division

she strutted away

and praised her decision

  1. Hold fast to those decisions. There’s a lesson here, for anyone who finds themselves in this situation. It’s okay to say no. I really like this message!
