Just Because - Poem by Seth Yuhi Musinga

Just because I'm silent,
doesn't mean I don't have a lot to say.
Just because I laugh a lot,
doesn't mean I don't take things earnestly.

Just because I don't say whatever,
doesn't mean I'm frightened.
Just because I don't say I love you,
doesn't mean I don't love you.

Just because I appear pleased,
doesn't mean everything's tolerable.
Just because I'm determined,
doesn't mean I expect you to change for me.

Just because I don't communicate,
doesn't mean I don't care.
Just because I don’t like you,
doesn't mean I'm bizarre.

Just because I forgive and forget,
doesn't mean you can take me for granted.
Just because I don't show my emotional state,
doesn't mean I don't have some.

    True.. It's not right how people claim that they undertand others, judging them on the 'apparent' signs that they get while a lot lies beneath the surface.. Thank you for sharing Seth.. (Report) Reply
