    What’s up with me?
    I have every reason to be happy.
    Blessed beyond measure
    No one could possibly be
    as blessed as me.

    So you say…

    You see the exterior
    where I dressed it up
    Put vinyl siding outside my walls
    so I could be
    low maintenance

    low key

    low down?...

    This frown
    on my face is a case
    of the “it sucks to be me”
    blues
    I got so many issues
    that I’ve got a subscription
    to my own drama.
    I should start charging
    tickets at the door -
    $10 a head for everyone
    who wants to take a peek
    into me…

    only to talk about me?

    What you see,
    is what I want you to
    and I’d prefer you not
    get a grip on my reality.
    It doesn’t really matter
    cuz what you don’t know
    you like to fabricate
    telling tall tales
    to raise your
    short comings

    And I’m supposed to be blessed?!?

    Glad blessings come from God
    and not mortal man...

    Girl, life ain’t that bad
    You know you got it going on!

    So they think…

    I’m just tickled pink
    that you fell for my act
    cause inside
    I’m a wreck
    From neck down all is fine
    But my mind reels
    at all the **** life deals
    It’s like I’m playin spades
    and I ain’t got none
    Not even a face card
    No books for me
    Bid Nil,
    Partner, cover me.

    Without the knowledge
    you can’t have the satisfaction
    of watching my reaction
    when you socially murder
    the only good thing I have left –
    My name.

    Time out for games
    I don’t have a ball or bat
    No net, no hoops, no goal
    no stick
    Nothing for us to go
    back and forth with

    Am I blessed?

    I will be…

    when YOU leave me alone.

    :cry: I'M SORRY!!! IMMA SAWRY!!!! I'M SO SO SORRY!!!!

    I'LL LEAVE YOU ALONE...REALLY I WILL :d

    okay i got that out...poet, this piece is transparent. a new step into the realm of DANILYN...you have allowed us to see you and whether this be fiction or non-fiction, the emotions that have been painted are real for many and true for some...continue to drop these seeds for they are falling on fertile ground...

    oh and by the way...today you are blessed because you are being a blessing to others...that is truly what it means to be blessed...

    okay i'm coming out of the pulpit now...:cool:

    My man D!!!

    Actually, this piece is purely non-fiction. Was it really that transparent? Maybe I shouldn't have posted it!!!
    Thanks for your continual words of wisdom. Knowing that I am a blessing to others really makes me feel good. You are always a blessing to me! :D
