You are so kind, she said and I am not.
I am rude and crude, rough at times and too outspoken.
Sarcastic and cynical, brutal sometimes if only with words.
You are so kind, he said and I am not.
I am offensive and uncomfortable at occasions.
I am selfish and self-centered.
You are so kind, they say and I am not.
I am headstrong, not easy to manipulate.
I am outspoken and embarrassing sporadically.
Kind I am not I think and then I look around.
I read the news and search online.
I study comments and feel lost.
I turn on the TV and stream a bit but not for long.
They were right, I am kind in a world that is not.
