Show Us Some Love

Never do I wish to have you see,
My bad side.
That side of me,
That is stubborn.
Self centered and selfish.
Closed to suggestions.
Not willing to listen.
Impatient, rude and offensive.
I want to show you I 'can' and will,
Know more about love!

Are you through in there?
You're not the only one,
Needing to use the bathroom.'

~I'll be out in a moment.~

'We all hear you in there,
Talking to yourself.
Give us a break.'

~Give me a moment.
I'm just washing my face.~

Good luck to you my friend.
I 'am' going to show you more love.

'Show us some 'love' and hurry up out of there.
Get away from that mirror!
We've got serious business to take care of.
There's a line out here.
Hurry up! '
