Read My Poetry

If you truly want to know me,
Then your time please do bestow me.
Let me show you how I love,
And my praises to the Lord above!

Please do not depend on others
Who say they know me through my mother.
They will only tell you this:
That their feelings I dismiss.

It is true I am indifferent,
You could say emotion'ly distant.
I don't mean to be that way,
Shyness keeps my niceness at bay.

My best friend, I do so love her,
O'er my words her eyes do hover.
She does know that I am nice,
And willing to help at any price.

She also says that I am super,
And she knows I'll never dupe her.
Through my words, she sees my heart,
Where my true self gets its start.

So this is what I do ask of you,
Read my poetry, it will move you.
It reveals my inner self,
And puts my crudeness on a shelf.

Never judge a book by its cover,
For inside may be a great lover.
Writing gives my self a great shove,
To show that I am blessed from above!
