How Do You Like Me Now?

Poem By CeCe Lamberts

Don't tell me what to do
to gain acceptance from others
Don't ask me to pretend
to be someone else
for my own sake...
Don't offer me your strategies
to get this guy to like me.

Your strategies are worthless to me
Your criticism leaves me indifferent
I don't need your patronizing
Keep your advice to yourself

I don't do things to be likeable
I just do things for myself

Do you think I care
what he thinks of me?
Do you think I care
if he likes me?
Do you think I'm afraid
of his rejection?

Well, think again!

I've been too good for too long
Enough!
It's time to clean house
To toss the bossy ones in the trash
To bury the dead six feet under
To burn their papers
To cut through their pictures
To delet their files
To turn the page.

wow i love these poems and i think that you have got some serious talent.
like you still enough to wanna' hear more.
This poem is like a volcanic eruption of biblical proportion. But you're right, we should not allow others to dictate us.

Some of them choose to touch me
