Excuse yourself

Excuse yourself

A Poem by Heather

I'm sorry that you misunderstand.
That the majority of you think I choose to be mean.
This is me, so take or leave my hand.
But I won't change for you, you can but dream.

I'm not sorry that you don't like me,
For I don't want to be liked or needed.
I just want to be able to see,
That it's possible for me to not be mistreated.

Sometimes it's easier to blame,
Than to admit defeat.
For not all conclusions are the same,
I merely lack the consistency to change it, to retreat.
I like to think I'm okay, I'll get by,
For it's better to be honest, than a liar and a cheat.

I love the confidence that shines out of this piece. The refusal to change and be something that others want you to be really speaks to me. You should never have to apologize for being who you are and this piece captures that exquisitely. Great job, Heather!

The first mistake
A band of soldiers finds diplomacy in the dreg forest comes with consequences.
People misjudge and misunderstand. Some of them think they are all that and want put others down. I think we have to be ourselves and draw our own conclusions. Life is short to worry about them. Excellent...:)..............

I agree. You are welcome...:)..................

A really heartfelt poem that I have read.
I wish a lot of women I know would read this. Because it has the message that I would want them to know.
That you don't need to change yourself for anyone else. The world is truly indifferent but we are an individual at the end of the day.

My favorite line, "But I won't change for you, you can but dream."
Very strong. Well Written

Gee
In my younger years I used to bend, sometimes to much, to fit in, be liked accepted, looking back silly really. I'm now at an age where I don't really give two hoots to what people think of me as long as I have the love of my family and friends I'm content. Cheese and fried onions, can't be to much wrong with you if you like them. Liked your writing Heather

Not much sucks more than being misunderstood. I think most of us want to be liked and to be nice, but sometimes it's just best to be understood, whether they like us or not.
