So today I sat
And I sat
And I sat
And I listened
And I got irritated
And I got annoyed
Then it was either cry
Or hit a wall
And so I cried
Why you ask?
My smile is not good enough
HUH? What the hell is that!

Do I deal with customers?
No, I sit in a corner at my computer

Do customers enter our building?
No, never

Does this affect my work skill?
No, definitely not, in fact
I scored excellent on skill and ethic
Policy and procedure
Always helping other departments
Attendance and presenting new ideas

Yet, my yearly raise was cut 2%
All because my smile
As if I am some morbid clown
Or deranged pompom girl
I should walk around always smiling
That’s me happy as can be!

Ya know, I don’t get it
Most times,
I am just so focused
The projects are not often easy
It takes planning, critical thinking
Minute details that cannot be missed
My mind is constantly in motion
Yet I should stop and worry
Bout what people,
Whom I have never spoken to, mind you
What they think of my smile
Oh and the bit of leftover New York accent
That automatically makes me mean

So this is what I say…
To myself of course
Or I’d never get a raise
I am who I am!
I cannot be eternally smiling
Does that mean I am not Happy?
Does it mean that I am a bad person?
It means……
I’m not a phony
My mind at the moment is busy
I am a working Mom
Who creates 10 page spreadsheets
Calculations, formulas, you know
That most times get thrown out
After 3 weeks of working on them
Listens to everyone in the office vent
And never tells anyone else
Who has spent over a month
Fighting cold, flu, ear infection
Who suffers at times with depression
Severe anxiety and social anxiety
Contending with a 7yr old
Who doesn’t want to do homework
Who makes a mess 5 min after I clean
For whom I bust my butt everyday
Paid in peasant coins
To keep food on the table
A roof over our heads
Medicine so that I don’t fall into a coma
Make the car payment
A dog, a cat, and a stray cat
A working Mom
Who cannot in good heart
Go shopping, go to concerts
Or do anything for herself
Because it's just not possible
Still, I motivate myself everyday
To get out of bed
Do the best that I can
At home and work
Try to make everyone happy
Well ya know what
F*** Me!
Whatever you want to think is fine
Just leave me be!
