About Me

I'm an open book here, and I have a lot to say, so I'll just say it.

Superficial Impressions

The concern comes over me,
needles me in my good nature,
leaving behind the framework
for the frivolous to rip apart
with the fury of a savage.

I am not a contestant
of your flawed perception.

I never asked for the verdict
you projected on me.

Why do I worry about your image of me,
when I couldn't possibly see inside your mind
to get a glimpse of it anyway?

Thoughts are what they are,
opinions without a voice
and some should stay unspoken.
