Clearly Confusing

Updated on March 19, 2017

Virtual reality, the use of the oxymoron is quite often confusing,

When you think you've won, you are so most likely to be losing.

Growing smaller, your perception of the assumed is to be factual,

In all truth some are questionable presumptions, rather as actual.

Being passive aggressive about the matter, you'd have a fine mess,

What all the psychologists maintain, in absolute uncertainty, a guess.

Acting naturally, the advanced beginner, clearly confused, is all alone,

A little big man, his acute apathy, evidently perplexed, almost is done.

Amateur experts in language assessment, have to be anxiously patient,

Often using artificial intelligence, computers, just to adjust their accent.

Their arrogant humility, the authoritarian anarchy, adding to the dilution,

Often found missing, an open secret, pretty ugly, this unbiased intrusion.

One may think they hear a silent scream, their sweet sorrow, for tomorrow,

A great depression may befall, this tragic comedy of words, we may borrow.

Found missing in the congestion, a simple suggestion, in a deafening silence.

The larger half to grasp a silent answer, as a broken-legged dancer, balance.

      Quite an interesting use of oxymorons. "Arrogant humility" most striking. Thanks for sharing such a talent.

      Hey threekeys. I just meant to expound upon the oxymoron and really did not mean to seem that I was upset here. Blessings my friend. Hope you continue to read and respond to my writing. Thanks. whonu

      Interesting poem. It sounds as if someone has upset you. Everyone writes and creates for their own rhyme and reason. Trying new approaches. So styles vary. I am not sure what I'm trying to say but, don't be upset.
