This piece kept calling me back. The words were resonating, aligning with events in my life the last couple days. The context is very different but the last three lines, well that’s what she said…
I cannot change the way that I am.
It s not a whim, a fashion, a style. It is not act, a pose, an affectation. It is not a sham, a fake, a masquerade. It is not some elaborate pretence.
I have not adopted a persona to attract or to seduce.
The word Dominant does not define me. It is simply a way of translating what I have always been into something that can almost be understood.
I cannot alter, modify, change, reshape, or reorient myself.
Not without betraying every thought, desire, belief, sinew and fibre of my being.
This is me.
I can never compromise.
Not even for you.
