Honestly Speaking

I’ve never been wanted. Even when I was invited to come in. At first, I’m welcomed with open arms. Everyone wants to receive me and all that I have to offer. Then, it’s too much to handle. I become too much. Always too much.

Pretty soon everyone starts to avoid me. Ignore my presence in the room. Some act as if I don’t exist at all. But I do. I am. Some try to sweep me under a rug or hide me in a closet. But somehow, I always escape. Always. No one likes it when I do that.

It’s tough being me. My presence makes those around me uncomfortable, sometimes edgy, rude or belligerent. Why ask me over if you don’t want me here? But I’m here now, and I always will be. In one form or another, I will always be here. Accept me, deny I exist, but you cannot get rid of me. For I am Truth.

  1. Really well done! I suspect that we all feel that way, to some degree. But at the end of the day, we are who we are…

    And I suggest, there’s no apologizing for each of us being ourselves.

    I’m just sayin’…
