Many Think They Know Me But Only A Handful Really Do

Updated on July 11, 2015


I wrote this many years ago:


Many think they know me

Only a handful really do

I've shared a lot with many

Opened up to very few


You sometimes might hear my whistle

echo in the hall.

The rhythm floating wildly;

an insignia, my call.


Others think they have a grasp

on just who I might be.

They open the door, but to their dismay,

It's not me.


No further will I let you

My friendship is for all

Stab me in the back

Now the wound is raw


I am here today

and tomorrow too.

Many think they know

The knowledge of the few

      Thanks Larry! Probably only a few people know us really well but yes, no one knows us completely I guess. Many of us don't even know ourselves completely I suppose?
