~Understanding Me~ 
to those who hate poems of any length,
I must ask that you give me a fair listen,
for there are times when few words
are just not enough. Thanks


~Understanding Me~


Some people seem to get me right away
Itís as if we just seem to click
Like a simple string running thru a candle
Makes us now call it a wick.

Some say, ĒAt first sight
I didnít take the things you say and do
As being meaningful or right.Ē
And they cause a fuss with much ado.

Ask me and Iíll say that they look
So much at themselves and this alone,
And they have a hard time with me
Not being a blonde sort of clone.

Most everyone gets me eventually
Once they realize that Iím never unclear
About my motives and circumstance,
And that Iím not over there, Iím right here

So itís all good in my book
One just but take a good look
At me and my words and actions
To see that thereís minimal infractions.

Iíve been around enough to receive
That some think Iíve something
Squarely up my sleeve
Iíve always believed itís better not to deceive.

For what goes around comes around
Some call it karma if you please,
But reaping what you sow
Is nothing at which to sneeze.

No, Iím not fluent at swagger
And I know not lies in what I say
I carry no hidden agenda or dagger,
At best my words are puns and play.

Usually I just know how to speak
According to whom Iím talking to
So in order to get my message thru
The words and deeds must match, as is due.

Some arenít used to this oasis
And donít trust a bounty of beauty in light,
Theyíve heard more in the form of a fist
Believing this is true blue and right.

Loving unconditionally to some is uncommon
And a frightful way to live
Theyíve never been given this joy delightful
And they donít understand those who give.

Iíll not say Iíve never lied before,
Iíve saved my ass two or more times
But rest assured that in these pages,
I talk in truth in every single rhyme.

Despite its length this is a great poem.I never really understood why people can say a poem is of a lessor greatness because of its length. Beautiful work should be judged by it's content not by the word count.You are a master of your craft.
