Day 98 – Never, Don’t, and Too

I was told that I was small
and too smart for my size
and too bold for someone
who really wasn’t
that smart.

I was taught that asking questions
was disrespectful,
but that answering for myself was
out of bounds.

I was expected to know all the answers
and to admit that I knew none,
to be grown far past my age
but never act it,
never question,
never make mistakes and
NEVER ask why.

And now I am much older and
I’m asked to let it go,
ignore everything that I was
taught to be.

But I keep asking about which parts
I should reject, how can I change
when I’m made up of only never,
don’t, and too.
