I Prefer Silence to Address This

So what if I want to express myself the way that I do
You gave me options and then decided what I needed to do
Used guilt and judgement to puppet me around for your convenience
Preached about boundaries and couldn’t take it when I tried placing them
You could easily mold me and I was too afraid to tell you how much it hurt
Now that I have my voice I don’t want to use it on you
There’s no point
You’ve showed me for years that you don’t respect me
This is the rare time that my silence is going to heal me and so is walking away
