Not Anymore

The whispers

The side looks

The constant putting down

You’re no good

You’re not cool and never will be

You don’t like me.

Well guess what?

News flash

I don’t like you either.

It’s not that I hate you

No one deserves that

It’s that I don’t understand you

Never will

Never want to

I will never put you down

Although every minute you diminish me I wish I could do the same to you.

An eye for an eye

What good does that do?

So I quit trying to stop you.

You jeer

You taunt

You make fun of me behind my back

I ignore, silently look away, pretend you are not putting me down just so you can feel better about yourself.

The whispers

The side looks

The constant putting down

You’re no good

You’re not cool and never will be

You don’t like me

Well, guess what?

News flash

I know myself

I’m comfortable in my own skin

Are you?
