PROMPT: On Courage

3
Stay home!
Keep house!
Quiet Down!

I can't
I won't.

I want to leave the house 
and see the world
and make a mark on it
because
it's just as much mine as yours.

Soon, 
you'll marry a nice man
and raise a quaint family, dear!

No!

I want an outspoken,
opinionated,
kick-ass
woman. 
She could be my 
not-so-quaint
family.

And I could apologize
for breaking your rules,
but why make amends
for your wrongdoings?
