POEM: Can’t Stand Me (daily prompt)

Can’t Stand Me

I like myself.
Myself is kinda cool.
Watching myself is sometimes like watching a movie.
Listening to myself is sometimes like hearing a trapped friend.

I have an old video of myself,
Public speaking in college was fun,
Enlightening to my shyness,
Thinking of three speeches was creative.

I wore a tan and white sweater,
That sweater exclaimed that I’m poor,
I figured my hair was looking good,
Told me that nobody really cared.

I have this microphone that I use,
I record fun things for it to repeat back,
It repeats my voice and interests,
I listen to nasal but interesting me.

Sometimes I watch the video to remember,
How far I’ve come in being me,
I relate to it in the nervousness,
I can understand the joy of myself too.

Sometimes I use my microphone for fun,
I push the button and exclaim something,
Listen again to remember my thinking,
Playing around and enjoying life.

I like myself.
Myself is kinda cool.
Watching myself thinking dynamics.
Listening to myself and having fun.
