Dr. Suess for Adults

I am an adult

And I know that the woman

Is sick with fear,


In the disguise of an adult.

But, my knowledge doesn’t blunt her viciousness.

Or her power as a “parent”

To isolate and try to destroy a sister.

I don’t hate her,

I despise knowing that no amount of distance or amount of time, will stop my aching,

Or my compassion

When she lashes out with hate on a dime @sickybeat

I am a writer with an extremely active imagination. I love learning answers to questions and what makes everything and everyone tick. I am a "Unique case, medically" if nothing else. I am flawed in my extreme aversion to failure (even when "success" isn't good for me,) but have come a long way in ditching the perfectionist mindset. I like people whose default setting toward others is compassion, an open mind, and honesty
