Poem: Sorry

legodimensions_background1

Listen–

I’m sorry for how I ramble on

for how eye contact doesn’t always click

for how I didn’t speak up because I was scared

and for how I spoke up and made things awkward

 

I’m sorry for the length of my sentences

and the depth of my inferences

because I read into things so much

and not everybody is a novel.

 

But here’s the thing.

I will never apologize for challenging you by being different.

I will never apologize for inconveniencing you by being complicated.

And I will never apologize for having more dimensions than you can comprehend.

 

I don’t owe you an explanation for who I am.
