Weird Vs and Fake Ts

November 11, 2020

My handwriting is the same as people think I am.
Fake. Except... I'm not.
Fake that is.
I think that I am an authentic person.

My handwriting is a different story.

It doesn't just come naturally, I created it.
I have to put effort into it.
It's still sloppy, but it looks... better.
I have curved my Is and Ts.
Swooped my As.
Made my handwriting look like it could be a teacher's.
But it's still fake. Like people think I am.

That shouldn't faze me.
I know that it's not true.
I know that I'm a real person.
But it can sting sometimes.
Knowing something about yourself that others don't.

Then... I'm fine.
But I have to wonder...
What has the world become?
People no longer think that kindness can be genuine.
That smiles are real.
That people don't always demand a price.
And I become sad again.

But, I'm okay.

And even though my handwriting isn't mine,
I still own it.
Because my Vs look like Us.
That will never change.
It's annoying... but I'm okay with that.
Because it's genuine. Real.
                                                                            It's me.
I don't know what that was, but it came from the prompt challenge beth r. created. Hers is a lot better. Regardless, I hope you enjoyed this. It's a pretty messy piece, but it's mine. Rose out.

    reply: Thank you so much!! Your pfp is really pretty by the way. It's cool you had a username named Rose, one of my Main Characters for a manuscript I'm working on is named Rosaline! I like this poem, it's so creative. The analogy for handwriting vs. personality is really good.
