Don’t Cast Your Pearls Before Me (A Poem)

Screen shot 2015-02-05 at 1.39.29 PM

Don’t you cast your pearls ‘fore me
‘Cuz I don’t really want to see
Things could be different if I were invested
But this isn’t anything that I requested

Just short of saying, you want me involved
But yours are problems I never could solve
And though your trust in me is flattering
It comes across as pressuring

Trying to take on your weight is bad for my health
Barely got enough strength for myself
Like Laura said, “the Lord knows what [you] need”
But the sad truth is that it isn’t me

I have to be cruel to be kind:
There’s someone else you need to find


PS: I just compared myself to a pig
