Tongue and pen

One, two, three
take the high ground morally
turn the wish into a dream
keep your ethics and beliefs.
I am queen
because I’ve kept my dignity,
though all its really gotten me
is self respect and restful sleep.
But I am free
no one has control of me
not a puppet on your strings
I can see right through the seams.
Four, five, six
I’ll never miss this ignorance
never stop opening my lips
I’m a poet-tongue and pen.
