Nice (10/19/16)

Nice

Is that all I am?

 

A feel good activity

 

Do I care

That they’ve never

Seem to think of me otherwise?

 

A chance to make another’s day

 

Kind

Is that all they see?

 

Maybe I’ll have my day made too

 

Do I care

That they don’t

See any deeper than that?

 

I write on everyone I can

Sweet

Is that my label?

 

Holding still when I’m told

 

Do I care

That I am so

Uncomplicated in their eyes?

 

Wondering who I’ll write on next

 

Positive

Is that what I give off?

 

The activity ends

 

Do I care

That they don’t know

How much pain I keep inside?

 

All the papers are full of touching words

 

Nice

Is that all I am?

Except mine

Do I care?

The answer

Is yes
