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

Thanks, Krisitin. :)
FEAR has two meanings:

Forget Everything And Run

or

Face everything And Rise.


The choice is mine...

I think that this is really clever, the way you express isolation, melancholia, and how you describe responses between you and a significant other, It is great, the way you question matters is such a concise and convincing way, great writing here, I felt.

Walking through a midlife crisis, with uncertainty within the world aside from the fact that you have a generous, trustworthy lover to hold your hand? Priceless. I find it quite odd that I look forward to this day, with nothing but (hopefully) a lover to guide my path.

*dilemma
The subject you delved into has always been pressing to me, Dhaye. And I think you should go back to where you should be. We are here only for a lifetime and if we would cease to be ourselves, we never lived at all.

Very insightful, Dhaye. Keep it up.
