A Poem


I don’t need to show my intelligence to prove,

I’m worthy to be the love of your life.

I don’t need to think before I speak,

So I don’t sound common and middle class.

I don’t need to Google the words you say because I simply

Don’t understand them.

Fuck you

Don’t forget me and you came from the same.

I don’t need to sit down and idolise men who were known for their sick arrogant ways.

I value the way you love to learn,

But I hate how superior you feel against the world.

You want to be president of the world.

You want it all without looking behind and seeing

Where you have came from.

Never forget who you was when you become who you want.
