I'M A Mystery - Poem by Mitch Shanders

I'm a mystery.
Solve me.
Here's a key;
Unlock me and find out.
I'm a tragedy.
Heal me.
Here's a band-aid;
Kiss me and make it better.
I'm a lunatic.
Tie me up.
Here's a straight jacket;
Make me tight and immobile.
I'm an optimist.
Give me hope.
Here's a daffodil;
Help me be happy.
I'm always a puzzle.
You can never put me together.
Here's the missing link, but
You can never fit it in.
