Just Don't

        Don’t put me in a cage
        Don’t slide me in a drawer
        Don’t label me
        Don’t shut me in a box.

Don’t cast me as a bitch
Don’t call me a witch
Don’t name me Jezebel
Don’t see me as the icy queen.

Don’t adore me as a goddess
Don’t admire me as a princess
Don’t fall at my feet
Don’t crawl in front of me.

        Don’t put me in a cage
        Don’t slide me in a drawer
        Don’t label me
        Don’t shut me in a box.

I am Rosie Real
and right here in front of you
not one thing or the other
just me as I am and want to be.

I am Rosie Real
and not just a thing to blame
for your misfortune
or ill conceived ideas.

I am Rosie Real
just full of contradictions
I am just the way
I am supposed to be.

So,

        Don’t put me in a cage
        Don’t slide me in a drawer
        Don’t label me
        Don’t shut me in a box.

Don’t dare.
