Keeping the Peace
Spring has sprung and I really rejoice.
Because I have finally found my voice.
I sure don't need to 'stuff it' any more
Nor am I gonna kick'im out the door.
I now speak my mind, yes ma'am!
Don't need a piece of bread and jam
To stuff my negative feelings galore.
I'm boot'n those thots right out the door.
I've lived with negativity all around me.
It doesn't mean I always have to agree.
I'll sure not keep the peace at all costs.
Just now, I'll let him think he's the boss.
