Justification! Why?

You say
I must justify
What I deserve
I must clarify
What I argue
I must verify
What I detect
I must defy
What I dislike
I must rectify
What I err
But why?
Is it a compulsion
Or merely a proposition
For nobody likes
These bloody suggestions
Which appear to them
Only and only coercion
My life is not
A property of others
I will do only
What I like
What I love
What I feel
And what I think
You have no need to grumble
Please try to become humble
Improve your own disposition
And leave me to my own confusion.

    A monologue revealing the stream of consciousness, when the self feels tortured due to some righteousness denied.
    The penetrating internal rhetoric is effectively organizing facts for the presentation of truth,
    The rhetoric question is made for the deeper impact of the justification justified.

    ‘What ever it may be
    Proposition, suggestion or submission
    It shall not command my heart and me’.

    Well composed, with effective alliteration, colloquial diction and occasional rhyme. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Ambrose Bierce

by Ambrose Bierce

Once I dipt into the future far as human eye could see,
And I saw the Chief Forecaster, dead as any one can be--
Dead and damned and shut in Hades as a liar from his birth,
