Daily Prompt: Provoke

He tried to provoke the storm of anger brewing inside of me.

And I so wanted to just let it out for I was tired and just not in the mood to deal with all these people.

But, I stood my ground and let you go on your way without letting my storm not just destroy any mean bone you had in your body but I  mine as well.

I don’t want to regret snapping at you but, I know I can’t let you get to me.

Like you get to everyone else in your life, I won’t be your victim.

You provoke me to do better and put up a better shield that doesn’t let the things from simple-minded people get to me.

You can’t touch me with your sad words for I know and see you for who you are.
