PROMPT BELOW!
If you find inspiration with this, let me know. I would love to see what you guys do.
Prompt:

Half the names on the list had already been crossed off.

Check out Rohan's Defender and Coolgirl! Honestly, these are some of the most awesome people ever! And they write beautifully! Also, books4life is working on an HG fanfic and you NEED to go read it!

Also, if you need someone to rant to... I'm right here, ready to listen. And if you ever need someone to do a review, I'm here. And if you need a hug, I've got a few of those, too.

LMK if you'd like to be updated on any of my series.

Who I Am

Ask me who I am
I dare you.
I am not just a girl.
I am not just smart.
I am not just quiet.

I am a girl who believes
that men are not
evil
held as superior
holding women down.

No man in my life
has ever tried to hold me down.
My dad has pushed me up.
My grandfather has taught me so much.
My brothers have been my best friends.

I am smart because I choose
not to listen to just
the television
the internet
social media.

I have spent so much time
listening to what makes sense.
I have learned logic.
I have learned honesty.
I have learned truth.

I am quiet because I don't know
what the heck I'm saying half the time
unless I listen
unless I hear
unless I learn

I can hear you screaming at me
but I won't stop you, yet.
You yell because you're angry
You yell because you don't know
You yell because you are scared to be quiet

I am not just a girl.
I am a girl who loves the men in my life.

I am not just smart.
I am smart because I have taken the time to learn.

I am not just quiet.
I am quiet because I know you'll listen when you're ready.

I do not fit in the box the world is building for me.
I do not fit in a box.
And I will not be pushed into a corner.
I will not say something that I do not believe.
But I will listen to what you say.
And if I still do not believe you.
Okay.
But please, don't shove me into a box.
Because I am not the doll you wanted.
I am a person.
Not a doll.
And I do not fit in a box.
Because that is not who I am.

    You should some very special men in your life, V. I’m so glad they can keep being there for you, and thank you for sharing this. I’m sure your dad, brothers, and grandfather would be honored if they know you write this about them. <3

    Speechless. No words. I agree with Anne though, that many women have been hurt and it's not okay. I do believe many men have hurt women, I got the erm, puberty, sex, etc talk when I was 10 but I also got a talk specifically for girls. It went like: don't walk alone on the streets at night, always have a phone or a guy with you, if someone catcalls don't react just walk faster etc. You put it in great terms though! ;)

    This is really powerful. I'm kind of in between. I agree that most men will never hurt women and that we can do anything, but I do acknowledge that far too many women get hurt. Not that we need to be afraid, though.
