Favorite Quote:
You're never fully dressed without a smile.

Spit. It. Out.
I get told a lot.
Words juggling around in my mouth.
Spit. It. Out.
But I don't know what I'm trying to say.
I want to scream.
But I can't.
Because my mouth isn't forming what I'm thinking
No matter how hard I try.
And my body is rejecting any type of signal
To show my feelings.

I b**** at you?
Ya wanna fight?
I can't control my words.
My mouth.
My feelings.
I don't want to scream,
But I will.
Spit. It. Out.
Are you sorry now I did.
Cause I am.

And you'll tell me I'm wrong
Whether I say it or not cause that's what you do.
I'm used to it.
Just don't expect me
To spit out respect.

Don't think too hardly about this poem. Just kind of think of it as you may.
