What If

When they see me
They'll think
They'll judge
They'll talk

When I'm in the way
They'll glare at me
I ruined their day
Now they'll be late

Narrow hallways
I step to the side
Back to the wall
Just let me go hide

What if they honk
Or I'm in the the wrong lane
When the streets are congested
The people gone insane

What if i have
food on my face
or a milk mustache
in this public place

then it hit me
that they all have
opinions.
Opinions of me.

When they see me
They'll think
Before I can speak
Now it's up to me
to prove them wrong

Or right.
But it's usually not
Because my pale skin
has plenty of flaws

I live in my sweats,
athletic shorts
I don't dress to impress
but then still come the nerves

what if they judge me
don't like me
they're mad
and I ruined their day
