If you got to know me

I think you would like me.

I always try to do the best I can.

~

That’s why I don’t understand.

Why I am a stranger

In this land.

~

Maybe it’s because I don’t know

What was on Jay Leno

And only have 1 purse and 3 shoes.

~

Is it that I know every player

In the Steeler team?

And what a Safety means?

~

Is it that I know the bible

But am not a Christian

And still know all the quotes you care to mention?

~

Is it my tattoos?

My big boobs?

My smile?

~

What is it about me

That you don’t find worth your time?

Do you honestly think, I don’t mind?

~

I’m told I’m a marshmallow

That I’m too nice

To stop helping strangers without thinking twice.

~

That I need a shell

I need to pretend

Stop being honest, it just hurts in the end.

~

Is that why I have 3 friends?

Who won’t answer the phone when I really need them

They who have known me for years on end.

~

Am I supposed to change who I am?

Learn to pretend?

Grow a new skin?

~

I just would really like to know

What it is that offends you so

 Maybe then, I could learn to grow

Jaded.
