I didn’t always talk like this.
I once had the smooth calm speech of the common populace.
Knowing which words attached where
And the proper spacing of each syllable.
But I don’t talk like that anymore.
No, I’ve got the sputtering speech of someone born this way
When I get nervous or anxious or overly tired
And theres nothing I can do about it.
I tumble over words like JaJaJaJaJaJapan or ttttttttttomorrow.
But I’m not ashamed.
Not despaired by this brick wall in front of me.
Instead I embrace my newly learned uniqueness
And trip on down the st st st st street.
