My first attempt at the 100 Word post. Borrowed the idea from Baglady, who does such a phenomenal job with these. Do check her blog out if you haven't already!
Well, here's mine. :)
You were a nice word, Nice, but you soon became blasé;
an empty word to take refuge in when I did not have much else to say,
when I was called upon to be polite,
when I could not be bothered anymore.
My education taught me to take you with a pinch of salt. I looked upon you and your buddy, Interesting, with suspicion. You meant back-handed insults or worse, apathy.
I went on a giddy trip with Awesome, Amazing and Insane. They showed me Awful, Fake and Depressing.
Now, I wonder…maybe you are enough. You are, after all, Nice!
