Drama queen
She was called,
I thought not fairly…
An early life of
Deprivation & abuse…
Wouldn’t you anticipate
That life would be
Hard to deal with?
Not dismiss her as if
A screw loose?
Empathy isn’t
Something all possess,
So judgement may be harsh…
A little understanding
Goes a long way…
Just isn’t as dramatic

    I love this. People are so quick to judge. Not many are willing to look beyond the surface, so a person who does is a true treasure.. Like you😊

      Thank you so much, Suzanne. People are indeed quick to judge. Knowing the story behind this one only made me have to write it. I heard “drama queen” applied too many times.
