Onlookers Decide

Poem by john tiong chunghoo

poetry is a picture of yourself
without you having to worry
what others would say of you

poetry is your view of the world,
your side of things, your value
of things, without having to
worry where your position is

it is that lake that can make
you look impressionistic
or even abstract but it never
takes or adds to your idea
of yourself because that is
for the onlookers to decide
