Day 23 – Spectacle 

Last night I felt sexy
Willing to let my body show
Without apologies

Rejecting toxic thoughts of what others
Could be thinking

Who cares
They could only hope to know me

If they really knew me
The depth of my ability to love
To protect, to feel

Scary to some, but oh well

I’m not just some DSM statistic
I bring my gifts to humanity
As isolating as it may be at times
To feel different and alone
I’m not alone

After all, I have myself to keep me company
And I’ve treated her like a rejected friend
For far too long

Day 23 and I’m well on my way
To achieving my own personal greatness

Those that missed out or rejected me once
Won’t think twice about it, but I will

Knowing that if they had held out
Waited for the big reveal
That they would be rewarded with parts of me they’ve never seen

I am not a spectator sport –

I am spectacular

    I, too, am not a DSM statistic but I guess they need some textbooks. 🙂 I have had about 4 diagnoses because like all humans I am unique. Finally, we almost have the right one – ANXIETY with depression and OCD

      I’m glad you’re getting it figured out and hopefully treated in a way that best helps you.
