“Kind of”

Kind of is my thing.

I am full of “kind of” and “sorta” and “quite” and “almost.”

It’s kinda never fully committing to anything.

If you’ve ever received a message from me, you’ll know what I mean.

Every titbit of information, every advisory phrase, every idea and crazy notion;

“it’s kind of like…”

It’s not ingrained in my speech the way ‘like’ and ‘literally’ are,

it’s not that I don’t believe in what I’m saying.

It’s not wanting to sound bossy. Controlling. Too loud.

It’s kind of feeling the sentence is almost… too there if I don’t say it.

I’ve been using this shield for the long, sentences don’t sound right without it.

They sound sort of in your face.

Like I’m shouting

or pushing.

And I don’t want to be a pushy woman. Because that gets us nowhere.
