Me.

Long story of

Coming from

Insecurely humble beginnings.

***

“Don’t write it like that;

I don’t think they’ll like it”

Blindly nodding to stray opinions.

***

Is it still me

If I quarantine

And compartmentalize my thoughts

To what someone else

Believes is the better me?

***

Good or bad, any me

Is the me I choose

Over a genetically modified

By-product meant to impress

Recipients of my illustrations.

    Reblogged this on mind JO business and commented:
    Support “REBLOG” Sunday Ep09: I can’t think of one blogger who can’t relate to this piece below by Original-Dante. The number of times I have stopped and edited my initial thoughts when writing is insane. When you get to the place where you write without thinking of your audience must be surreal. #NewGoals

        You’re welcome! It was an awesome poem, I couldn’t resist. I decided to go with this one instead of the other one we discussed 😀
