I'Ve Already Said What I Have Had To Say - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

I've already said what I have had to say.
But what has been stated...
You want it said another way.
Unfortunately there is nothing else.
Nothing I'd like to convey.
I am not the one in masquerade.
Nor am I the fool you believed,
I portrayed.
You choose to hide behind pretentions.
And today I seek reality.
Something you hide and afraid to display.
There's no need to argue.
Or vent a temperment!
I've already said what I have had to say.
And after years of saying the same thing to you...
I've decided to keep my peace of mind,
Before I allowed you to take it away!
To become devalued.
And that is not my intention meant!
