Leave Me Alone

Leave Me Alone long poem

Photo by Georgie Pauwels

No thanks…I don’t feel like doing that today
Tomorrow isn’t good for me either…can’t you
Take a hint I just wanna be alone but you keep
Trying to change me and my life well it may not
Be much of a life but it’s my life…
You say you love me and you hate seeing me
This way, take a long hard look at yourself before
You start preaching to me about what’s good
For me and what’s wrong oh yeah why don’t you
Just Leave Me Alone and take care of your own…
You say I should quit smoking, exercise more
And get out of the house to clear my head, you say
I should go to bed at nightfall and get a good night’s
Rest instead of staying up all night long well I’ll
Go to bed when I wanna go to bed, who the hell
Do you think you are trying to tell me what to do
‘Cuz if I know you like I think I know you, you just
Wanna act like you know everything and everything
Is perfect in your world…you’re just a fool
Leave Me Alone and take care of your own…
Now don’t get me wrong I know somewhere deep
Down inside you have my best interest at heart
But I happen to like things here the way they are
So I wish you’d find someone else to try to change
You sound like a broken record and I’m getting tired
Of hearing the same ole thing, worry about own life
What you keep secret the wrong, stop giving me
The third degree and Leave Me, just leave me the
Hell alone, take care of your own and Leave Me

I had a dream last night. It was very concise but interesting. Rather revelatory, but not prophetic in the usual way. There was a class with a facilitator encouraging input based on a lesson plan provided to the class. I,
