What I Do Know (Free verse) by PsydewaysTears
I woke up
Out of a sound sleep
To make sure I still had all of my fingers.
I don't know if that means I'm crazy
Or just extra careful.
I dug through
To the bottom of the garbage can
To make sure the wasp I had swatted was still dead.
I don't know if that means I'm psychotic
Or just a little paranoid.
Myself sleep for five hours
To make sure I didn't cease to exist during the night.
I don't know if that means I'm deranged
Or just deeply disciplined.
I asked my
History teacher if the past ACTUALLY happened
To make sure the world wasn't just playing some prank on me.
I don't know if that means I'm an idiot
Or just a bit intimidated.
I rung my hands
Around my neck and squeezed until my head popped off
To make sure I didn't let somebody else get the best of me.
I don't know if that means that I'm erratic.....
But I do know that you don't know either.
