The letter E

October 2017

I remember learning the letter E

Standing against the wall unit in the living room

While western shows were playing on the TV

Wondering

How many horizontal lines belonged

In that incomplete square

 

I remember my mum didn't understand me

Or even try to understand me

She just kept repeating, without clarifying my error

"That's wrong

Why aren't you doing it the way I showed you"

Since then I felt frustrated

For not being understood.

 

I want to know the problems I have with others

So I can learn about the problems I have with myself
