The Nice Guy vs. The Bad Boy

We can do things that aren't us
really well some times.
You can't be too open or too
sensitive
about risking everything
by not risking anything and just being

I don't care what four billion people think 
And I certainly don't care what I think.

I cant help but care about what others think...you are brave if you dont :)

It's a kind of Orwellian reversal and seems totally rediculous. I agree. <3

Hi raam. I didn't feel good about my first response to your comment so I deleted it. This poem is about me assuming the role of the two labels and having a dialogue. I may have failed at being clear about that, but the last two lines are about the two different attitudes of self to the outside world. As for me personally, I usually do care what people think generally, and what I think as well sometimes. :)

I think I am stuck in between somewhere...in "Never, Never" land.
