#Poem – I Haven’t The Time For This

Poem – I Haven’t The Time

I haven’t the time for this
For people taking advantage
I haven’t the patience
For scammers and charmers
For non communicators
For people who expect me to mind read
Expect me to take lead,
To do my own research
And disappear down rabbit holes
And speak to dark industry moles
And make my own mind up.
So far all of you expecting me to understand
Your theories –
Or otherwise.
Your teachings
And how much I’m willing
to invest
In myself
To build better abs or pecs
Or guilt me into believing
My anxieties are privilege
They get stuck in my language.
I have no patience
For my own impatience
For your lack of compass
And how compassion
Isn’t my first port of call.
