In this society,
you cannot be at peace with who you are.
You must always find something wrong
with your biological makeup
and every choice that has shaped your personality.
They say, "love yourself,"
yet shame and call those who do narcissists.
I chose to separate myself from this hypocrisy.
I am beautiful,
I am clever,
I am funny,
I am not perfect,
I am me.
I chose to accept all of it;
the ups and the downs,
my vices and virtues,
every single experience I have in life
that will help me grow
into who I am becoming.
**** the media,
I apologize that this has no structure and is just utter word *****... You really can't even call this poetry.
I've been going back through my writings from a few years ago and feel they have more of a flow and style. I'm obviously very different from who I was then, however, so I'm re-defining my style.
Sometimes you have to destroy it all and find the new out of the chaos (word *****)
