Poem 31.   WHY?

Poem 31. WHY?

A Chapter by Margaux (Dhaye)
"

some people are so critical

"



Why did I smile in hope and joy

The time I speak my mind

Only to find that happiness

Could end at any time?

 

I always speak my mind, my heart

But  I need to control

The words to say, I have to choose

So as not to injure.

 

I spoke, you heard. I joked, you laughed.

I cried, you also wept.

The words I said were from my heart

The secret I can’t keep.

 

I shared, you heard, I joked, you laughed

But some of you alleged

I cried, you wept, some of you frowned

And thought of me as strange.

 

Why should I run when there’s a chance

To walk with dignity?

Why should I hide when there’s a way

To show the real me?

 

Why should I keep on entering,

Does this place fit for me?

Should I stay or should go back

To place where I should be?

                   

                     ***


And now I know after I've made

a deep apprehension

I have to stay and be stronger

And live with that reason...

I just want to share this quote from my hidden casket in response to your second stanza :

" Create balance between reason and passion; learn how to express sentiments in full while preserving self dignity. Remember, too much is as dangerous as too little. " ~ Blackjaye

100 cookies and milk for you, Why o why a great write...there are 2 types of person in this world you need to choose, are you the one to be followed? or you are the follower? if you choose to be followed you must free your mind, write stuff from your heart without holding back, free as nobody can touch or pin you down and your artistic work wont be compromise. if you are the follower you will always holds back, always overthinking things. You always follow other people opinions and values. That makes you a follower. So in this piece, I guess you will start learning how to be followed. Good work!

Being sad sometimes is fine, letting it flow and hope to be blown by the wind... There's this soft sadness in this poem, but, rising above chaos is what's important.. Keep writing, keep shining!

Cheers,

Thanks, ella. :)
hard to be oneself when that person is not known. many, many of us have that condition and most don't even realize it. clever poetry with an awesome rhyme scheme...very good ...and the music works quite harmoniously with this piece. nice work.

Love this, lots of emotion in this piece. Never fear showing your true feelings, we need to be true to ourselves first and foremost, those people that can't accept our truth can't be saved. Nice one.....

"Why should I run when there’s a chance
To walk with dignity?
Why should I hide when there’s a way
To show the real me?"
A very powerful poem. There is wisdom in the words. We must stand our ground and be ground. Thank you for the outstanding poetry.
