What makes me TICK!



Why do you ask a question that you already know the answer too?

Why is it that every syllable that comes out of my mouth is followed by your short smile and laughter to make me feel special?

Why do you self portray yourself as a dimwit, an idiot, a fool?

Why am I "so smart", when everyone knows you are at the top of your class?

Why do you degrade youself with the clothings you wear and the names you allow yourself to be called?

Why are you not being honest?

Why are you not being honest to yourself and portraying a self image worthy of any man calling you his "bae"?

Why do you feel it is necessary to confine to the degredation that you have placed within yourself?

Why can't you be you?
