Egotistical Expression

by C'Moore Productions

Let me say my piece.
I want to just flow,
not caring how others perceive what I am saying,
           not worrying if I'm offending anyone.
Letting go of my desire to have people think
I have it all together.

I want to expose my character and my confusion
            my profoundness and my pain
            my intelligence and my insanity.

I want to analyze every idea in my brain.
I want to talk until it all makes sense.
            Sometimes, I don't know what I think
            until I hear what I say

I want to say how I feel.
I want to talk myself to tears; of joy,
of pain, of love.
I want my soul to open up and transform all of its
             contents into the spoken word.

I want to hear myself say it; all of it.
I don't want to write it down,
put it in a poem, or
             keep it all bottled up inside.
             I want to talk for a change.

I want to verbalize and vindicate.
I want to discuss and divulge


I want someone to listen.
Not counsel or comment,
Not interrupt or interpret,
Not justify or judge.
Just listen intently,
       nod occasionally
                         let me say my "peace".
