Mystery (Daily Prompt Challenge)
I am told I’m childlike,
almost a little too innocent,
that I only see the good,
even in those who don’t deserve them.
I am told I’m sentimental,
I let loose my tears too soon,
that I should instead hold them back,
and save them,
for times of doom!
I am told I’m not pretentious,
I’m just happy being me,
I should try to fit in more,
act like I’m part of the ‘family’!
I listen to these judgements,
and smile to myself,
as and when,
Coz I know who I am, deep within,
I don’t need to shout it out or sing!.
I’ll let loose this titbit though,
without unravelling the mystery,
I’m a true blue Scorpio,
pretentious: showy or ostentatious
