What I Do - Poem by Linda Engwall

I always try to tell the truth - well unless it would just hurt you - then of
course not

I really do think I am right most of the time

I big into validation, okay I don’t always agree but I validate your right to
feel it and say it

I really love animals contrary to what other say I just don’t like the mess they
leave behind

I am a good judge of character even when it turns out I am wrong about that

I love my “original” family to a fault well could be that I don’t live around
them anymore

I can talk anyone under the table if I am inclined too

I think I am a complicated person or perhaps that just what I have been told and
now I believe it

I sometimes wonder why people like me and then I think that can’t really know me

I believe I am one of those people that know a little about a lot of things – so
it all comes down to the bluff

I always wished I was more special or had a talent that could transcend to help

I am still trying to figure myself out

I am so into self-help, motivation, quotes, poetry or any thing that moves my

I am as hard on myself as I am on the ones I love

I would do anything for the people I love, but not always what they really need
from me

I can think too much – oh no you say – yes and it is not always good

I am so hoping that I can somehow leave a mark something behind to be remembered
