Label Yourself Anything You Wish - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar
Why is it that you feel,
You 'must' seek a definition...
To label me and what it is I do?
And I should fit comfortably within,
Your limited boundaries?
If that works for 'you...
Haven't I already 'suggested' to you,
Approval and acceptance are not words...
In my vocabulary?
I think the notion of both is ridiculous!
Why are you staring at me like that?
Can we at least agree,
You have visions of building bigger boxes.
And I will always find a way to look outside of them!
There is no need to ruin your indigestion over this.
Or roll your eyes.
Call me names.
Or do your offensive thing!
I've stated to you...
You can label yourself anything you wish.
What you do...
And how you achieve 'mental security'
Is 'not' going to change...
What OR 'whom' with an 'It' or an 'Is',
That provides my insight.
And that is 'not' YOU!
It will 'never' be you!
Why are you on my doorstep,
Trying to convince me of that?
Why can't you just go home and relax?
Why is it you've got me in your head like that?
You've got to be sexually frustrated!
Or severely impaired by a lack of comprehension!
