Someone, Like me..

I can’t be anything other than this

Over -think. Over-share. Over myself.

I try you know.

Be better. Be less…. just be

It’s so hard you see

To have a million judges sitting at your mouth

Those gavels bang a steady rhythm in my skin

I just want to crawl out of it

Be a newborn me.

Oh the silliness that I show

Is nothing like me at all

Folly. Fool. Uncool.

This constant compulsion

Of verbal expulsion

Shut. Me. Up.

But sometimes when the light is not too bright

Or the mirror too harsh

I think maybe it’s ok

To be this way

That out there the strong silent type

Is longing to be

Someone like me.
