Who Cares - Poem by David Harris

They stand and look at things
with their eyes closed tight.
They claim to see just what others don’t,
branding someone a liar and deceiver.
Sadly, they are the ones
who deceive themselves all the time.
Who worries if someone uses a different name
whenever they sit down to write?
I personally don’t.
Who cares if they make up an age they want to be.
I personally don’t.
Who cares if they exaggerates
about what they may or may not have done.
I personally don’t care.
Everyone no matter who they are
wants to be someone different at sometime or other,
and there is nothing wrong in that.
Just so long at the end of it,
they are happy in their own way.
I have no quarrel
with what anyone does
and I don’t think
anyone else should do neither.

    ditto to Andy.....I do feel bad for the people that tear others down...they must think so little of themselves that they need to break others down below their own bellies just to build themselves up.....they must really think lowly of themselve and have to much time on their hands to bother with such trivial matters....look in the mirror first and get that log out of your eye before you judge!

    That's what writing is all about! Whether it's prose or poetry,
    writers invent a persona for the occasion. Men can pretend
    to be women (witness Tolstoy's Anna Karenina) or women
    to be men (Mary Shelley's Frankenstein) - or can be many
    in one work (witness everything by William Shakespeare) !

    Just as long as the end result satisfies the criteria for good
    creative work!
