Thinking about what you said

Holly Flame Maxey 1976 (baltimore)

You should not think that you are annoying
Because…
You are….you are annoying
And that is ok...really it is ok

Acceptance is key in moving on
When you can accept who you are
You can arrange your life
Accordingly

Say to yourself
I am a poet and I am annoying
And that is ok
You will never have a personal relationship
But do not despair

Knowledge is emancipation
There is freedom in emancipation
Most importantly remember
Whatever is annoying to someone else
Is fun for you
And the only person who will never leave you

Is you
