f1bdda898b3da72674bfb904220ae4caYou are misguided in your attempts to make me feel worth it,

Wrong in your belief that I hold any value

I am dark, sad and damaged,

No one wants someone so outspoken and vocal,

I don’t have the grace and poise of others,

I don’t have the looks or good complexion

I am flawed and emotional

I am impatient and stubborn

I don’t take to help very easily and I don’t like showcasing my vulnerabilities

What you see is a flawed individual

I do not need you to take pity on me
