Don’t

 

purple flower

Don’t tell me how to write
Encourage me instead
Don’t be critical
That kills my spirit
Don’t give me formulas
I don’t like them
Don’t give me rules
I will break them
Don’t dictate
I won’t listen
Don’t pretend you know it all
You don’t
Don’t expect perfect
It won’t be
Don’t tell me how to fix it
I don’t need it
Don’t patronize
It pains me
Don’t criticize
I will cry most likely

Feeling dial!

Why do I always feel so much?
Why can’t I be numb once in a while?
Why can’t I shut down my heart
To the pain and sorrow that’s around?

Not feeling is not the answer
Feeling numb does not make sense!
But feeling less may be OK
I think I need a feelings dial!

But a machine I’m not
And I don’t have a dial
I am who I am
And I have to accept it all
Accept my strengths
And my flaws

This world is not made
For perfect people
But for those who will try
And those who will strive

Strive to be better
Strive to serve
Strive to learn
And not give up

Not give up
In the face of calamity
In the throws of pain
Not give up
When the going gets tough
And the walls come up!

So I’ll live my life
With its tears of sorrow
Its laughter and fun
I’ll feel what I’ll feel
I’ll accept it all
Don’t have much choice
So said a friend of mine!
