It is what it is

My mother always told me "your a thinker, use your brain," but every time I think to hard it causes me great pain. I tried to tell my dad but he just told me not to strain he said its just a thing in life your brain just has a stain.

Shirts get stains shoes gets stains and believe it or not your brain get a stain. the technical term for this is Cognitive Distortion.

I actually really liked this... it's really nice how it's short too. But it also leaves the window to expand if you wanted to. Either way it's good!

I like this one, how you compared it to everyday things. I really do hope that your Cognitive Distortion gets better, though like I said, the most quirky (I'm not sure if that is the right word ... do you know what I mean though??) are the best authors/artists/etc ... :)

I know that sometimes the formatting in Teen Ink sucks so I won't go for it. Anyway, your a thinker should be you're a thinker and to hard should be too hard. its just a thing should be it's just a thing. Overall, this poem is kinda funny and so, kudos for that. :)))
