It's true, I'm crooked as H.

This line I’m walking,

Well, it’s a crooked one.

From the second I took my first breath,

My line jagged.

It looped.

As I grew,

My line swerved.

It zigzagged.

To those who walk Straight Lines:

Do you really?

Friends, Family,

Past Experiences…

They curve our Lines;

Small Nudges

Are given unintentionally.

To those who walk Straight Lines:

I’m jealous.

You must be Perfect,

and Beautiful,

and Handsome,

and Smart,

and Kind,

and Polite,

and the Fakest

Fucking Thing

I’ve ever seen.

Good for you though,

If you’re so great that you get

The chance to walk a

Straight Line.

But I guess I’ll just be moving this way

Forever.

My crooked-ass path of life.
