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

I don't know but I find this one clean and in order. I'm not good at poetry structure and all that stuff so I'm just gonna say this one strikes a chord. We can't please everybody no matter how we want to, no matter how hard we try. Sometimes, we just have to let it be, go with the flow and live by the moment. Nice one, Miss D!

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?

Throughout life we ask ourselves these questions repeatedly, at each stage. And sometimes we have to stay, sometimes we have to realize that a place is no longer the right fit.

A good poem, made me think.

Thanks for your time upon reading and reviewing this piece, Rita.
It's frustrating sometimes when people would misconstrue the words we mean so well said. with regards to the the last stanza, only the voice could truthfully answer the question. so emotional write!

Thanks, Jack. Glad you love this. :)
"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."
They say that the tongue is a wild horse that needs to be tamed which is true so not to injure our beloved or any one else for once the words leave our mouth we can't take it back . This poem has some good questions and self-reflection on things...Good job...:)
