I was made ...

I was made ...

A Chapter by Dr. YumnaKay
"

Experimental. Current state of mind ...

"
I was made 
carved out of stone 
with a heart that bleeds 

... silenced till death.


I was made
to follow,
too meek to argue 

... with tones, hushed.


I was made --- human,
born with flaws; a contradiction,
meant to be sought 

... never understood.

I'm glad this is an old one, because knowing what I know about You I can't ever think of You as "to follow", but to stand up with Your strong ongoing spirit, still I can't not say that this is such a powerful and profound piece, each verse stands alone with the thoughts it carries, I hear a revolution over worn traditions, the aim to be free, and the longing to be heard and understood inside's someone's heart, it matters not if the whole world misunderstand You, all You need is that one person.

All of us. Easy to break and hard to understand. Your words allowed the reader to feel the thoughts and the struggle. Thank you dear Poet for sharing the excellent poetry.

Was my pleasure dear friend and you are welcome.
To be human is to be fragile, yes we bear so much, and yet beautiful in our mess. Loved the read!

Thank you for your words here and for appreciating, Karen :)
You were born woman, the carrier of life, the carer, the comforter, the gentle hand.. Those are the requisites society should treasure.. and so should any and all non.male creatures! Beautifully tender, tragic words, dear friend.. your eloquence makes me proud..

The state of mind you reference is clearly stated in this piece...

That said:

"I was made
to follow,
too meek to argue "

NOOOOO!!! Your piece about your title as "Doctor" and the dedication required to achieve that tells me otherwise about you.

Please, please, would more of you female poets write of your strength, and your ability to keep getting up every day and functioning, your huge hearts that carry huge weights, but "carry" is the operative word, not giving up or giving in...even if some days are spent on your knees - even semi-upright is still "upright".

I'm sorry, you write so well, so eloquently...I want to be inspired and read works by gifted poets such as yourself and raise my fist high shouting "Hell, yeah!"

Well structured..When you think about it, teeth are a bit like humans, 'born with flaws'.

I can recommend a good dentist!
