Babbling Thoughts Again....

Poem By Angelique' Rockwell

I'm running all around
Trying to get shit done
Every, single, fucking day
Being accused of having fun

So, at least once a week
I try to get out
Then I find I dread going back
What the fuck's that all about?

For such a long time
I wasn't allowed to do shit
Leaving the house was an issue
Sometimes even school would start a fit

So yes, sometimes I still run loose
It may be just to show that I can
That no one can control me
Especially some stupid man

Now it seems that my mother has replaced
The man I married but grew to hate
She starts to talk and I try to run
I don't need stress-it only makes me gain weight

So when I finally do escape
I have to push myself to return
Only to get yelled at again
Like a child who just won't learn

If only they didn't make ita big deal
Then I wouldn't run away so much
The need wouldn't be so dominant
The 'escape' wouldn't be such a clutch

I'm looking for a job again
Something productive for me to do
To keep me out of trouble
And out of fantasy land too

I'm very good at what I do
So I know the confidence is there
The only problem that I've found
Is that they look at what I wear

I don't act or dress my age
For that I am aware
I don't wear make-up
And only sometimes do my hair.

If you don't like me for who I am
go on and stand in line
I'm comfortable with who I am
an if you don't like me that's fine....
