Dear Clumsiness

Dear clumsiness,

I hated you for years.

I dreaded your arrival,

That would often leave me in tears.

 

Dear clumsiness,

I wanted the “it crowd”.

I desired to be popular,

But your job made you too proud.

 

Dear clumsiness,

I detested my own feet.

I blamed my blonde hair,

For the embarrassment I would meet.

 

Then life was altered,

I made a friend.

She was ungainly,

Equal to me to every end.

 

Dear clumsiness,

We laugh at each other.

We look out for one another,

Like a brother.

 

Dear clumsiness,

I enjoy your company.

You now make me feel less,

Awkward…

 

I think I need another friend.
