Poemetry by T.A. Barnhart


being me
is not the worst thing
that could have
happened to me,
but it’s bad enough.
and it’s what i’m stuck with,
the hand i’ve been dealt
and give me some time
and i’ll dig up
some more useless clichés
to try and hide
just how pissed i am
at how unfair it is
that i am who i am.
i blame my parents,
but there’s more than enough
to go around.
please form an orderly queue
and wait your turn
to take your share
of the blame
for me
and my life.
