Talking about Me

by Loolwa Khazzoom • December 13, 2015 • Songs

Talking about me
In my own language now
After decades of translating
You may not
Understand or relate
I don’t really care anymore
I’m tired of persuading you
Breaking it down
Packaging it for you
So that it’s digestible
Fitting your perceptions
And points of reference
You can hate me
And malign me
And claim that I am crazy
I just don’t have the energy
Or interest
Anyhow I’ve seen it goes nowhere
I can pique your curiosity
But I can’t make you care
So I’m just going to say
What’s on my mind
And you may be confused
But I’ll be crystal clear
This time
