Backwards People, Creative Writing

Just because others don't understand our actions, speech, or reasoning doesn’t make our differences wrong or incorrect; nor does it mean we are drunk (or even slightly buzzed). We are just more creative and imaginative than what others are used to.

Backwards People


I am a backwards

person

in practically

everything I do;

What seems

like the ‘right thing’ for me,

probably looks completely

wrong to you.


I would rather

finish last,

than to come in

at a miserable first-place;

And, I enjoy putting

makeup on my feet,

while completely

ignoring my sock-covered face.


I prefer

a tiny room,

than a large,

mansion-style house;

And, I am much

happier wearing

pajamas to a formal dinner,

than my finely-pressed blouse.


I am a backwards

person

in practically

everything I do;

On my feet, I wear a hat,

and on top of my head,

I wear a patent-

leather shoe.


I like to end my day

in the beginning,

And, begin my day

at the end;

When I am supposed to

drive on a straight road,

it is then that

I must make my own bend.


When I am stopped

by a police officer,

I smile because

it does so make my day!

Yet, when I get

an award of any kind,

the depression

is difficult to keep at bay.


People do not

understand me,

so they judge

what they know not;

Bullying makes them feel better

about their own weaknesses;

so, I guess

they must have a lot.


I am a backwards

person

in practically

everything I do;

I know because everyone

tells me so,

but I think their ‘forward ways’

are very backwards, too.
