On What Basis Can You Rate My Experiences? - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar
On what basis can you rate my experiences?
What scale would you use to highlight or deflate,
A calculation of the anguish and fears I've endeared?
And what or 'whom' are you comparing my life to?
Since no wound or scar that mentally or physically appears,
Can not be felt by anyone else.
Nor is there anyone near,
Who can see through my eyes that have been made clear.
On what basis can you rate my experiences lived?
Even your imagination could not imitate,
The origin of my tears.
I could hand you a script that documents my every move.
But still in the doing you wouldn't know what I've gone through.
Although you insist my existence is without hardships.
And on what basis are you rating this?
From a random survey you use to seek truth?
