Do Not Ask For Permission Kaveri Patel 2012

Do Not Ask For Permission

take a sledge hammer

to the statue

they have erected of you

fashioned by their own fancies

of how you should look

who you should be

Do Not Ask For Permission .

Smash it

into a thousand should

you sweep into the dustpan.

Then stand naked

in front of your own mirror

and dress

in your softest words

of wisdom

whispering

from within.
