Some situations leave me quite confused,
when things I write, to others make no sense,
itís then I question my intelligence,
I wonder, do you know I became enthused,
to tell you this because of a theme I used.
It feels as though I have to launch a defense,
Iím troubled: defense at my hearts expense?
That leaves conviction feeling rather bruised,
I choose to write whatís in my thoughts and heart,
Thereís no need to struggle for my meaning,
Itís not hidden, quite clear upon the page,
Iím simple, nothing will set me apart,
Iím no genius, ambitions not aimed high,
I'm not a soap box orator enraged,
But you should know how many times I cry,
And bite my tongue before I dare reply.
