I will not. 

You tell me to be quiet. 
Flowers bloom in my mind and waterfalls gush in my soul and you want me to subdue myself
I will not be subtle because you feel threatened
I will not weaken my power because you are not strong 
I will not dull my thoughts because my tree throws your sapling in the shade 
I refuse to be less simply because you are not enough.
