Day 27: Write the poem you’ve been too afraid to write.
I wouldn't say I've been too afraid to write this, because I'm not afraid to say it how it is, like a lot of Northern girls. But it's more the hassle that can come with being honest. I can handle the backlash, but sometimes I can't be bothered! So here's my honest poem. It applies to one person. Who isn't going to be named because I don't think his fat head could swell any bigger without exploding and showering us all. Good riddance.
Dear Mister Man
Life stealer, heart breaker
Stealing your way into my heart through my ears
How you loved the attention from myself and all the others
But you never returned the favour
You expected our unwavering dedication to 'le cause'
You expected our stupid acts of obsession
Like it was a normality that you were born into
Like belonging to a royal family I suppose
Naturally it wasn't always this way
You could be sweet, hurt, content to be the outsider
The nerd, the loser, the geek
Now however, you are so desperate to be the alpha
You want the success without the work
You would even step on your friends
In order to have the upmost of the spotlight you share
You flaunt, you lie and you hide behind two different faces
Well I am done. I am so done with you. With it all.
