Rising to the Label

I am sick of being talked “roundabout “

Denigrated for being in a state of being

That I had no say in,

though it is 50.1% what I am,

and where I go.

I am not used to fighting for equal ground,

But for a real say.

I am studying child law.

But, I do just as much teaching.

Know my person,



See the structure and the acceptance

As the annoyance,

Not me.

Suddenly when people listen,

When they advocate,

I am caught off guard,

Because no one warned me

They were rising to their feet about me,

Without me.

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
