Poem: You’re Just Too …

 

 

There was a time in my life

I felt I was too …

Opinionated,

Strong,

Hostile,

Immature,

Attention-Seeking,

Wanting to be right,

Dramatic,

Sensitive,

Inconsiderate,

Lacking in compassion

Bad …

 

There was a time in my life I believed these things

where I let words affect me,

even hurt me

but I eventually stopped

because I know myself

better than you know me,

I always have,

I just forgot along the way.

 

So keep telling me I’m too all these things,

keep telling me I’m too much

because the truth is I’m too human

because the things you see as too imperfect

are filled with love

but continue to be too in the dark

on that if you wish

because I refuse to be too scared anymore,

too scared of feeling,

too scared of thinking,

too scared of who I am.

 

Because now I know I’m too me

and I find me not too bad.
