Miss Understood

Can I say hi without being
Accused of being too flirty
Glance at the beauty of creation
Without it seeming dirty

To the other onlookers
Who thinks I’m a hooker
Trying to steal their man
Toss a wrench in their plans

Have I said something
That you didn’t quite understand
What you thought you heard me say
Did it force you to demand

An explanation,
Break it down for you
Explain it line by line
Time and time again to you

Why must I down play
Who I am
So others will see me
As Miss Understand

    1. It really is. For years I tried to down play, dress down and carry myself passively just to fit in. I’m still overcoming the effects of the insecurities of those around me. Thank you for your comment. I feel brave now for some reason. Maybe because someone else sees it.
