back in the day,
i was very quiet.
i was “shy” shy.
shit would happen and i would stay silent.
Life forced me to speak up for myself
i am fake shy these days,
but i’ll say whats on my mind if i feel fit.
in a world where folks hides who they are,
and their true thoughts on issues,
i had to wonder…
How honest is too honest?
…and if people know you’re honest,
why aren’t some folks not honest with you?
i had to wonder if choosing to be honest has turned people off from me?
i’m always honest about my feelings on the foxhole,
but is it wrong to be opinionated?
i always try to be honest with others.
i’m never malicious or set out to hurt people,
but i will call out something wrong if i see fit.
it’s weird because when i was quiet,
it was “you so quiet” but now that i speak up for myself,
folks seem intimidated and push me away.
so what is it?
i don’t know what people want from me anymore and…
Should I care?
