A poem about identity and romance

Aromantic

I sometimes hear the old saying

"Stick to what you're good at."

But what if you aren't fine,

You aren't content, with what you're good at?

I happen to be very good at what I'm good at.

I'm the baby, the nice guy, the guy friend.

I've no romantic bone in my body,

No matter how much I believe I do.

And I allow this to go on!

I'm always good, cute, and funny.

I don't want these traits to consume me,

But it's the only thing I know how to do.

But it's tough, you know?

We all want something real, something more,

But it's so hard to find.

At least for me it is.

I think everyone hates themselves a little.

I hate my cowardice, and my complacency.

My paradoxical desire to and fear for change.

But I'm too nice to hate like this, right?
