"I will not walk with you nor walk for you,
I won't live with you
And I won't die for you
But neither will I try to deny you
Your right to live an die.
I will not share one square foot of this earth with you
While you're hell-bent on destruction
But neither will I deny that we are of the same earth,
born of the same Mother"
One of my favourite things to read when I have feelings of bitterness towards something or someone and want to let go of those hateful feelings. It's a passage from Joan Cavanagh's 'I am a Dangerous Woman'
"I am dangerous because
I won't give up, shut up, or put up
With your version of reality.
You have conspired to sell my life quite cheaply
Because I will never forgive nor forget
Or ever conspire
To sell yours in return"
