    Did you ever

    meet the fool

    who was

    wise in his own eyes

    Have you ever

    heard a preacher

    mingle truth

    with his own lies.

    The man

    who murders jokes

    is here again.

    That guy

    who can't sing

    is entertaining.



    Why is

    the man

    who has the

    brilliant mind

    living on the streets.

    There he is again

    the wealthy man

    who needs change

    for tea.



    Why is

    your son,

    who was so kind

    so clever,

    hanging from

    that tree and why

    don't daughters float.

    Does news

    always need

    to be bad.



    What makes woman

    so confused

    she wants

    to be a man

    will she find himself.

    Pain is felt

    it can also be seen

    in the expressions

    of children wandering

    without a moral compass.





    What's that

    song you're singing,

    what's that

    poem your reading,

    what's the first line again.

    I saw

    your face once

    in a mirror

    I knew it wasn't me

    so I walked away.





    The who am I

    the why am I

    the where

    I'm going

    has all been

    shown to me.

    So I'll leave

    you with

    these questions

    I'll be on my way.

    It was truly a very well thought out work of art. To be honest, I do not know if I fully understand it, which adds to its charm... I hope you keep on writing, it's really good!

    I always highly respected poets. I tried to be one myself. I failed, pretty much. Still, nice to see someone's succeeding.

    Love your work!

    I started writing last year and only wrote about what I had personally experienced. I'm 60 this year and so there are lots of experiences. You've got plenty of time....
