No thank you, I’ve got this!

Why should I be a damsel in distress

Just so that you can claim success

Over rescuing me from villains, demons and more

That narrative belongs to patriarchal folklore..


Why do you think I should walk on eggshells

Around your fragile ego, it’s time to dispel

The myth that I’m dependent on you in some way

Honestly, your insecurity empowers me every day..


The complexities of workplace I can navigate

Without your assistance, even if you hate

The fact of my independence, know this is true

I can thrive without your perceived benevolence too
