Rain on my Parade

Rain on my Parade

A Poem by James Takeo Panton

I stand alone, where I stand best
And do the best I can
I try hard, and sometimes succeed
Even though I am one man
Sometimes my strength is of ten men
And my will as strong as mountains
Sometimes these words, they tumble out
And flow forth like a fountain
I’ve done so much, with much to say
And some enjoy these words
To those I give my thanks and greetings
For making me feel less absurd
I would not now be where I am
Without a path that is straight and true
So many things I’ve to tell about
So many things to do
But once in a while, that path is blocked
By those that choose to judge me
Based on their own prejudices
Their words shall not come to budge me
The road to hell is surely paved
With the best of intentions
But judge me not by your own way
And ask me not for attention
My parade marches on, and forward goes
As I keep doing what I do
I appreciate your kind efforts
But please stick to what you do

Hi James, you are so right.. many judge and how many take two minutes to examine themselves in the mirror.. I get judged for being skinny and blonde; you are living the life that no one knows is the free-est, and true to your heart and what you do.. keep doing it.. good luck at Rocky Mountain House if that is where your next destination is.. take a moment and read my poem pictures.. it is my feature and while it is simple it is also complex too.. depending on the person who reads it and how they live.. you take care and I will be checking out some of your other work.. you are a fantastic personality and I thank you for introducing me to writerscafe.. strange how things happen.. for once the right time and place... I Thank you ever soooo much!
