or sometimes tell myself
how I see things
is different from
how anyone else sees things

I’m just being “dramatic”
I’m just being “out there”
I’m just being “silly”

and so my thoughts and feelings
are discounted
I am dismissed by those
around me
or by me

but my feelings are important

I can have wisdom
I do have knowledge
based on those experiences
based on how I see things

and I don’t think I’m that different after all.
