Poem: You Will Not

I will not let you
Force me down
I will not let you
Demean me
I will not let you
Make me lose myself
I will not let you
Treat me wrong
I will not let you
Do these things
That you have no right to do
I will not permit you
To do anything that harms me
Or those I love
You stand on shifting ground
If you wish to keep
The bond between us strong
You better move to surer ground
Or have a hole in your soul
Sparks fly in your eyes
A pain that will be with you
Once you do grow up

My name is Devin Hogg. I was born and raised in Carnarvon, Ontario, Canada. I moved to Guelph, Ontario, Canada in 2009 for university and lived here ever since. In my free time, I enjoy reading, watching TV and movies, going on long walks, swimming, and practicing Chen style Tai Chi. I love to write poetry and blog regularly about topics such as mental health, sci-fi/fantasy series, faith, sexuality, and politics.
