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
