Their loud, mean, oblivious personalities.
All I want is to be serious for once
Drop the act for a little and talk about what really matters
What really matters.
The dry riverbed that once surged with people’s hopes and dreams
The dog with a limp that everyone dismisses
The hurricane that’s building within each of us as time moves on
The elephant in the room.
You’ll understand wont you
You’ll speak with me about what really matters
You’ve been here longer then me
And now you say I haven’t lived enough
I don’t know how things work
I don’t know big fancy words.
So I’ll stand in the corner
Cross my arms in rebellion
And think of all the things I hate about you.Tags: Audre Lorde contradicting personality English poetry
