National Poetry Writing Month – 4/9

Standard

you’ve kept me awake nights

trying to figure out

why you don’t like me

why you make a point

to act like a playground bully

i’m 42 and you’re old enough to be my mom-

and i realized

someone didn’t like you first

you don’t understand why

we’re both just a little i

in someone else’s world.
