I QUIT

 

By

 

A H. Scott

 

 

I quit I quit the race

I quit the competition

My legs are short

My hands are too small

My age is too old

My bones creak

My marrow is weak

My brain is drained

My options are liquidated

My wisdom is rolling away like a wave off a sandy beach

My longing for acceptance is never within reach

I shake the fabric of white and brace for cover

I’m done and passed over

It’s over

But, suddenly here it comes across the horizon

I won

I’m me

If you don’t like it, move along

If you like it, then hear my song

Flesh not like a girl of her twenties

Or even a certain type of bunny

No, I’m not jealous

But, I can produce a pout to myself when need be

I use my wit and biting charm sarcastically

Syntax

Tic-tacs

Brain going full tilt

I may never be the one that’s the sexiest, prettiest or lightest on my feet as I glide across the dance floor to a throbbing urban beat

But, then again, a rhythmic sway in a crowded club isn’t such a life altering feat

Peel my skin off and be enraptured by my mind

And, when you see my skeleton, please be kind

But, damn it’s the way God got me built!
