My whole life, I’ve been told I’m ‘too.’
Too quiet, too sensitive, too negative,
Take things ‘too personally’, give
too much, too soon
For years, I saw this maximum, this superlative,
this giving my all as…
That I should seek limits, seek hindrance, in this
world that speaks opposite,
breathes ‘holding it
together’, ‘playing it cool.’
But now I overflow cups like liquid gold,
I feel too much, I give my all.
I try too hard to please, I overthink
I analyse, love too much, too soon.
Why can’t I give my everything, feel as much,
too deep, too strong?
Isn’t that the most human trait of all?
To be felt.
