No offense, but I've just been wondering 
How someone who has your experience 
Could fail to notice an obvious thing 
Not that you did, I'm only curious 
 
I guess I'm really just too sensitive 
Or, you know, I cannot just take a joke 
I don't know why I'm being negative 
My buttons are just this easy to poke 
 
You know, I'm still me, if that's an issue 
I know you did your best with what you had 
Life just sucks sometimes, so I'll pray for you 
I guess I'm not perfect enough, my bad 
 
I know you did it all because you care 
I'm not mad, I'm just saying life's not fair 


The author's comments:

I've always received a lot of passive-aggressive remarks regarding my art, my taste in music and clothing, and my sexual orientation. I decided I was tired of hearing them and chose to write a poem which, pretty much, directed everything back at those who found something to criticize about my lifestyle.
