It Never Hurts to Ask

Filling in the forms,

I send them in.

So many parts I couldn’t keep track.

And I hit send

Before I realized,

I forgot something.

Do I re-send,

Admitting my error?

To the people

who expect me to be organized?

Does it look better to admit the mistake,

Or not so much…

I don’t know,

But I sent it again,

Because so much is on the line.

And I will not assume I know

The way others will react.

The worst possible reaction,

is that they say “no.”

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
