Prod to be Prude

Prod to be Prude

A Poem by Maya Storm

Waiting Patiently
For you to say
"You are a hypocrite, and I'll tell you that everyday!"

If thoughts are things, and my thoughts are mine,
Are they real to you, if I have kept them inside?

Judgmental to the core, my actions have been pure.

Or have they?
Questions, Questions, Questions... 
shoot them all my way?
________________________________________________

I think to give you my best.
You choose to show me your worst.

I ask that you grow for yourself.
You choose a life, that uproots my joy inside.
_________________________________________________

I kept myself prestine for me.
Furious grabs a hold of you, because you can't find the key.

Prod to be Prude!
Hounourable, just, and generally good.

Leave me with my thoughts, I'll share, when I can. 
I'll share them all, when I begin to understand.
_________________________________________________________

Thank you for giving me, my voice.
Thank you for showing me my path.
Thank you for sharing your heart.
Thank you for allowing my life to start.
Thank you for all that you have done.

I ask that you continue to grow.
Help me find my own way home.
And if that 'help' is shutting up,
Please for the love of God
Do 
just 
that!

Wow, This is a great poem. I love the lines "If thoughts are things, and my thoughts are mine,are they real to you, if I have kept them inside?" Awesome job:)

I like the desire and the purpose of the poem.
"Prod to be Prude!
Hounourable, just, and generally good."
Hard to walk the good line in a life. Need to have good people around you to keep you strong and wise. I like the way you set-up the poem and the very strong ending. A excellent poem.

this is one way to ask someone to just hush, well done

I don't do deep thought critizism, I save that for those who feel they are elite.

I like this, it's just chaotic enough to demand your attention, but very honest and forthcoming. A great read indeed.
