I hate my stupid poker face that won’t show people how i feel,
because I’ve spent my life telling people “I’m fine”, it’s natural for me to conceal.
I hate the fact I’m 6 foot one, not normal and not tall,
And I can’t buy anything cool in my size till the sales in the spring and fall.
I hate being allergic to half the menu in any decent restaurant,
You’ll get bored with the places i can eat and i can’t take you where you want.
I hate my awkward eyebrows
I hate my stupid grin
I hate the way i nod my head
I hate that it makes people think I listen
I hate the way anything that’s ever gone wrong never leaves my head.
I hate the fact my mind is too full for positives instead.
I hate the fact you’ll never know that guy who met your eye,
Because all the things I hate about me stopped me from coming over and saying “Hi”

I’ve managed to go a couple of months without SERIOUS suicidal thoughts – actually considering the means etc. I have the odd few death wish thoughts but the’re relatively mild.
In other news I attended a discovery day for new authors held at Foyles, Charing Cross Road where Literary Agents Curtis Brown did a meet, greet and read for authors. The line was through the door and there were timed slots all through the day. I gave them the first three pages of my novel and they loved it. I need to try and get it finished this year and then submit it. They’ve given me a name to submit to so I’m now very motivated to think, act and plan as a writer rather than as a wannabe.
So pleased to present the beginning of “The End of the Garden” by Yusuf (Smiley) Yearwood. (1st novel on backburner, 2nd novel cooking nicely) Continue reading
