Glass

I don’t need you
to protect me.
I’m not spun from glass.
I’m stronger
than I look.
I’m not talking ’bout my sass.
I’m not some little girl
that needs to hide within.
I know how
to defend myself.
I’ll make it through thick and thin.
I know it’s hard
for you to see how I have grown.
I can take care of myself now,
so let me fight
my battles on my own.
Let me stand at your side.
I don’t need you
to protect me.
I’m not spun from glass.

Prompt: Protect
