Like the comfort of soft, delicate, moss,
By 2026, I plan to have at least thirteen small tattoos across
My arms, legs, hips, foot, two across the edges of my ears, one on my lower back, and one over my heart,
Each one a testament so strong, they're permanent, each part,
Each one in a catalog of each difficult overcoming or happy events/people in life,
That bring me joy or previously brought me strife,
I want several facial and ear piercings, for beautiful filigree and goth jewelry,
As well as permanent ear elfing/pointing surgery,
These all fit very neatly with my day-to-day personality,
Not an abnormality, nor do I do this to seek popularity,
Sorry if I made you cry while I was cutting this onion,
Don't tell me not to do something because of your opinion,
Sorry I don't conform to your "standards", and I'm not acting rash,
You're just pulling "facts" out of the trash
(I mean your ass, er, home, sorry,
Oh, you're so high and mighty)
Just because you don't like something, doesn't make it wrong for everyone,
You didn't save the world and now you're done,
I've seen photos of slender, not fat, old sailors who's ink didn't droop, I don't care what others think,
I'm willing to pay the cost for healthy ink,
I have countless family members, fiends, co-workers, crushes, and idols who've never had health issues
From this kind of thing, as I do for you, please hold space for my views,
Unless you like your heart being compared to the darkness of fuligin,
I love clear, tattoo-less skin, as well as tattooed skin,
I don't like blackout tattoos as well as certain designs and styles,
But I've traveled my entire life, miles, and miles,
Across the wide open spaces of Texas,
Back and forth, experiencing events that are deathless,
And I wouldn't tell others I don't like their tattoo designs or subculture,
That's rude, I'll bet your tennis shoes hold your only culture,
Did you drink a potion of anger, nosiness, meanness, and stupidity, from many kylices?
What if I came up to you on the street, minding your own business,
And told you I didn't like something you did by yourself or said to someone else?
There's no need for a complaint for you to file,
I look twelve, at twenty-six, I think if anything droops, it'll take a while,
I don't smoke tobacco or nicotine, or drink alcohol, or tan,
I don't sit where my eyes or skin could dry out from the fan,
I don't stay in the stress of abuse, and I cut ties if need be,
I have someone body double when rages my ADHD,
And of water, I drink plenty,
Sometimes I also drink healthy green tea,
I drink no more than two cups of coffee a day,
Eat balanced meals and exercise everyday,
I take regular breaks from electronics, and go to doctors when necessary,
And always take into account my issues with some things, sensory,
I stretch and do yoga, and meditation,
Do breathing exercises, and take anti-anxiety medication,
So what's the issue?
You think you know what's best, do you?
Maybe humans are much more complex, and that's only what's best for you?
