Different

I was never precious or fragile

I was hardly sweet and often too agile

They complain that I’m too much

Others say I’m not enough, as just such

I would never settle and they just can’t understand

I am not theirs to command

I stand out in a world that is full of the-sameness

Make up your mind and tell me what it is that you truly want

I don’t understand what it is you’re trying to say

Or not say.

I can’t read you

Just tell it to me straight

And make up your mind

Giving Up, Giving All

Here I am trying to sort this out

Here I am trying to survive

Trying to understand what am I about

And withstand the dive

I often, if not always, get knocked down

I whimper and frown

But as life is like this,

I just get back up again

Don’t Understand

They couldn’t and don’t understand her

Often wondering why she prefers to be alone

Why she wouldn’t want to be in relationships

Why she’d rather grow old by herself.

She couldn’t let them understand

That her happiness was not tied to relationships

That she was happiest being alone

To Be Tamed

They think she’s wild and needs to be tamed

So they all try to come with ropes, give her a name

The more they intimidate her, the more she fights it

The more they pressure her, the more she hates it

They misunderstand because they don’t want to understand

She doesn’t need to be tamed, she just need to be left as she is

A Conundrum

She was likened to a conundrum

She was often misunderstood 

She walked to her own beat

An unexpected kind of mood

She was a puzzle, a riddle 

That no one was likely to solve

How difficult it must be to love me

How hard it must be not to be noticed

To be put aside

Like I’ve done to so many

And yet, I do not feel the loneliness

Either I am numb or just happy to be without anyone

It’s My Choice

I am hard to understand, so better not try to

Not many can see what I can

I am considered a freak of society 

Because I choose to be single

At an age that many are already settled.
My being settled is different from most

And I know it’s hard to comprehend

My relationship status is not bounded or dictated by society

It’s just what I choose

I choose me

And others fail to see that.

No Love

They judge me

They tell me I’ve never truly felt love

Or been in love
But how would they know?

The dim witted often think they’re smart

They will never understand 

And I won’t care

Because I know,

Heartbreak is all I’ve ever had 

About Being Single

Every single day they tell me

Tease me

And sometimes it hurts me

Because a single word can be hurtful 

When every single time you are told

As if you do not feel a single emotion 

As if you are not smart enough to understand 

Because they think being single is a disappointment 

When truth is, their single mindedness 

Is the real problem

The Darkest Tunnel

Find yourself in the Chaos
