I am too patient, people have claimed.
If you test the waters with me, they will be calm and still.
According to some, I’m mad.
I don’t crack under pressure, people have stated.
I have competed with Atlas, and I too can carry weight on my shoulders.
Apparently, I’m strong.
How have you not snapped? My friends ask.
Could it be that brick wall that I built, to block out people’s bashing?
According to some, I’m odd.
You aren’t a normal teen, people have declared.
The lifestyles of the Drunk and Foolish have never appealed to me.
They claim I’m odd, mad, insane;
So be it.
Toss me a straitjacket.
