Sometimes I find myself
Feeling shitty about myself
And remembering the various
People have said to my face, when I had
It’s never that I don’t have anything to say,
It’s always that I’d rather not.
I don’t like engaging with trolls
Who don’t recognize my humanity
It just really fucking sucks
When it’s your parents, your coworkers,
Your doctor, therapist, neighbors–
Friends and enemies.
