You Don't Have To Be Misunderstood To Understand Picture of Me

Introspective Poetry

Picture of me

By the tree

For the world to see

Some take note with pillory,

Other’s cachinnating without chivalry.

An infrequent number stand and gawk

With complaisance

For the growing crowd’s tolerance.

Few weave in and around,

Offering magnanimity,

Prating about amongst them.

Most acknowledge

Picture of me

By the Tree

For the world to see

With tenuousness and immateriality.

The rains and storms undulate,

But a loyal strand wrap around

Picture of me

By the tree

For the world to see

With countenance

And loyalty.

Mildewed by the elements,

Separated pieces scatter down below

The rolling hills and valleys flow

Like floating moths softly drifting

Pieces gathering by the briny deep

Picture of me

By the sea

For the world to see.

The lingering snippets

Are concatenated together

As I contemn

The raggedy residuum.

No longer have I recognized

Picture of me

By the tree

For the world to see.
