You And I Have Yet To Cross Those Paths - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

You can not know what mood I am in.
You don't know me like that.

You base your opinions on what you hear.
Like others you know sharing gossip,
Customized for listening ears.

For years you've expressed what my attitudes are.
And visits to my home you believe,
Are excursions to pass judgement.

You can not know what mood I am in.
You don't know me like that.
I know I am hospitable,
Until my integrity is attacked.

And if that should happen,
It is not from a mood that I respond back.

I do not sit with wishes,
That others be put in their places quick.
And...
When I am the topic of a deceit that is falsified...
A mood from me is not what someone gets!
I am not into mood shifting.
Nor am I confrontational but I am direct.

What someone gets,
Is a regret they misinterpreted my persona.
And I ensure they get it corrected.
And 'that' I deliver not from a mood...
But necessity that comes to them,
With an understanding taught.
And a lesson learned I teach not to forget.

'Comprehension unmistaken,
Is best to get direct...
From the one who is the subject! '

You can not know what mood I am in.
You don't know me like that.
Since you and I have yet to cross those paths.
