I'm Not Here To Reminisce 'Your' Experiences


Those who speak out,
And unafraid to oppose...
A direction popularized,
With a blindness followed.
Are often left behind but find they meet,
The very ones to greet...
Explaining how they misunderstood,
The meaning of ignorance.
And how listening to comprehend,
Saves time to prevent...
Suffering through needless consequences.

'Why aren't you paying me any attention? '

~I did.
But today I'd rather walk,
Than to waste repeated talk.
Unless you are going to tell me,
Those wounds appearing on your head...
Are not from hitting it against a brick wall.~

'I didn't think you would notice.'

~Do you want to see a healing done,
From scraped knees?
Falling down until I learned the message?
I'm not here to reminisce 'your' experiences.
I've got my own.~

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Browning

After
by Robert Browning

Take the cloak from his face, and at first
Let the corpse do its worst!

How he lies in his rights of a man!
Death has done all death can.
