Cruel Irony


Ever looked at your name? ,
Ever thought about what THEY say it means? ,
Mine is ironic,
Deserving of one’s great love,
If you know me,
Really know me,
You know why I’d say that,
But you know what? ,
To me my name means something else,
My name means safe,
Familiar,
Yet different,
Common and yet so unusual,
An anomaly,
You’d see if you’d just get to know me,
That I’m not defined simply by my name,
I’m defined by the person attached to the name,
All I have ever,
All I will ever,
Claim to be,
Is,
Me

Poem of the Day

poet Edmund Spenser

Of this worlds theatre in which we stay,
My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
