Self-appointed

Self-appointed


You have appointed yourself

As my saviour

Thinking you know better than me

What I need

Fuck that

I’m not helpless

The only person I need saving from

Is you

  2. Each of us is an individual that thinks for themselves and we certainly don't need saving and being ccontrolled by another.

  4. I love it when people white-knight on my behalf--so not. I've also found that the white knight tend to become quite belligerent when I'm not properly appreciative.

    1. Right! Don't expect gratitude for something I neither wanted nor asked for. I've got my own sword thank you! :)
