The Art of "Staying Out Of It"

He told me to
Sew my mouth closed
and tie myself to a wall.
He thinks I'll say things
to make his skin crawl.

He must think I'm weak,
and ignorant,
and distraught,
When I really just don't want
to be a minor character,
in this major plot.

He told me that
I would get bruises and cuts.
I'm too stubborn to
except all his "no's" and his "but's"

He must know that I'm impulsive,
and headstrong,
and distraught,
When I refuse to be a minor character,
in this major plot.
