People are going to misunderstand you

And maybe its okay
To expect this.
To not be offended
When they mispronounce your name
Or assume you like mayonnaise
And that its really not
The end of the world
If they don’t like you.
People will misundertand you
Because they don’t live in your world
They have not tasted your pain
Drank of your joy
Nor heard your doubts constantly whirring
In the background.
So what to do?
Take a deep breath
Give the benefit of the doubt
And try and say it
One more time.
