Ironically Enough It Is Not In The Message


I don't mind the judging of my efforts done.
Or the ones who come to oppose my deeds.
As long as my observations remain relevant,
With a doing to realize those who doze...
Will always find a reason to feel offended.

And ironically enough it is not in the message,
Expressed to be left.
But it is the depth in which I keep my identity!
And that kept with me I will never neglect or disrespect,
To address and prioritize to leave no one guessing.

'Why does he have to be so...
Ethnic?
And all the time? '

~Who else is going to express it?
At least it's addressed AND with a message.~

'Yeah...
But where is the pathos?
The anger.
That unforgiving bitterness? '

~Who knows.
Maybe he leaves that to those,
Who assume that should be in his message.
Or maybe he anticipates that's what others will address.
And it leaves the message left that much more effective.~

'Yeah...
But there is no pathos?
There is no anger to detect.
Or an unforgiving bitterness expressed.'

~Maybe you should remind him,
How 'you' interpret his ethnicity.
And what it is you require to receive his message.~

I don't mind the judging of my efforts done.
Or the ones who come to oppose my deeds.
As long as my observations remain relevant,
With a doing to realize those who doze...
Will always find a reason to feel offended.

And ironically enough it is not in the message,
Expressed to be left.
But it is the depth in which I keep my identity!
And that kept with me I will never neglect or disrespect,
To address and prioritize to leave no one guessing.

'It's just not fair! '

~What's not fair? ~

'His messages!
There is no pathos.
No anger.
No unforgiving lip biting bitterness.
And I keep reading his messages.'

~I would say the job he has done is effective.
And ironically enough,
He has done it to you and with each message.~

poet Henry David Thoreau

Whate'er we leave to God, God does,
And blesses us;
The work we choose should be our own,
God leaves alone.
