I'M Not Day Dreaming - Poem by Ace Of Black Hearts

But if it is so honest why is their a need for what isn't yours?
Intentions mean nothing here.
It is not about fear.
It is not about losing something.
It is about what is right.

Notoriety means nothing to me.
I rather do good work in the shadows then do nothing in the spotlight.
But I will not be a horse someone else rides in on.
No sir, I do not desire the help or company on this lonely road I travel.

I'm am smart enough to know when I'm being used.
I see the clues.
Like little footprints we all leave our trails.
Some get caught in the act and still think they can pretend it never happen.
Sometimes I wish for their day of reckoning.

But I try to put it to the back of my mind.
For they are better things I can do with my time.
Then day dreaming about vengeance on a silver platter.
As if it would make my life in any way easier.
A commodity of ideals that will not flatter.

The opposition sees me as weak.
And I see their very existence as bleak.
And they're waiting for the opportunity to attack.
No matter if it is in the back.
But I won't react or lash out.
Calmer cooler heads prevail.
And in these waters I have already set sail

Enemies are made in both the time of peace and war.
But at least in times of war you know who they are.
You don't have to be so careful of who to trust.
For allegiances have already been made.
And this is not the case.
It is something I've already had to face.
A mistake, a regret, by what shouldn't been so easily given.

    Thanks for the comment. I'm currently am doing this from a smart phone, which with this website makes it extremely difficult to edit. But I do my best to catch mistakes before submitting them. When I get a laptop come income tax. I will go over them all, but for now I'll just make them worse if try to edit them. (Report) Reply

    Notoriety means nothing to me.
    I rather do good work in the shadows then do nothing in the spotlight..........i like this way of thinking.

    i think your poems would be more enjoyable (for me) if you did (more?) proofreading to catch typos.
