A doormat I will no longer be
Steeped in anger where
Frustration does abound
This is the time to stand
Stand my ground.

Let no one push
Push me around
No need to fight bicker or respite
Just nicely say
No, this is not the way.

I won’t be intimidated anymore
Today or any other day
A doormat no longer will I be
This is the stand that’s going to see
The nice and happy no doormat me.
