Not yet exceptional. When the exceptional rating is reached this is highlighted
I find I have discussions with myself often. Don't you?????

Self Talk

by A. Willow Bends

You are the definition of OCD.
You keep it suppressed.
You do things in order.
You admit you are anxious,
but deny you're depressed.

You are much younger in thought.
Yes, it's true,
but your body is aging
there's naught you can do!

You are a good person
with a dark side within.
You do fight that urge
when you know it's a sin.

You are open-minded.
Your brains often leak out.
You claim you are fearless,
yet you tend to freak out.

You are smart enough.
Smoking should terminate,
yet aware still enough,
it keeps rage outside the gate.

You are introverted,
a hermit at heart,
not ever letting others see
your UNsocial part.

You are rather funny,
thinking outside the box.
You are the type
donning long skirts with socks.

You are part hippie, yet new age,
stuck someplace in between.
You are an old lady,
yet act like a teen.

You are O.K.
in an odd quirky way!
You want to shut the hell up
but must have your say!

Of all the things admitted you are,
there's a generous part
that would lend others your ALL
right along with your heart!

I tend to be a bit hard on myself, but all in all, I am happy with who I am! Is there room for improvement? Ah yes! ALWAYS! I chose the visual by booklotto as I often feel I am two people and this represents me having a conversation with myself.
