- What Matters
Negative is supposed to be attracted to positive but not me,
You’re the most hateful gossip I’ve ever seen.
You feed off my cute innocence,
And try to make me think it’s really insecurity.
I don’t like you but I’m attracted like an atom-
I just can’t stand to be apart of another nucleus.
I’m not complete or sufficient,
But I know I’m not ignorant or empty-
I’m full of sensibilities.
TV, friends, and who knows what else
is trying to get me to believe this is who I should be.
This is how I should act
This is how I should talk
But it’s simply not me.
I really do like to smile,
Watch kid movies, and spend time with my family-
Or at least I think I remember that I do.
I like taking my slow, sweet time
Because pretty soon adulthood will arrive and sweep me off my feet-
(kind of like Prince Charming!)
I know this is jumbled and confusing because this train of thought –
This good decision making has left me a long time ago.
When it saw that you were the stronger force.
But now my vision is clearer
And I think we can leave the ship of trying to be mature
And cross into the saner ship of friends or –
Even better acquaintances
We’ll see but for now I think I want to be positive and be attracted to positive things.
