Poem Commentary

To judge another and to point and stare..... is to never know the person... unless you take the time to care.... Things are rarely.... If Ever... What they seem......I found that out.....the hard way....

CAN U HEAR ME NOW

No one wants… to walk thru life alone
No one wants… to have a heart with no
home
No one wants… to be kicked and  
unloved
No one wants… to be the person… in place of
No one wants… to cower and be
afraid
No one wants… to pay the price... they should've paid
No one wants… to wear hurt suspended in time
No one wants… to be associated with its 
crime
No one wants… to dance in the folly of
rejection
No one wants… to pray for touch n subtle affection
No one wants… to marry anguish n exist to cry
No one wants… to be broken... void of wings... n can't fly
No one wants… to dress and wear a blanket of shame
No one wants… to bathe and marinate in the
blame
No one wants… to walk in the shadow... of your shoes
No one wants… to know… if not me… then who
No one wants… to welcome the thoughts of
suicide
No one wants… to later stop and realize
why
No one wants… to have a revelation of truth
No one wants… to grow with a pain you can't soothe
No one wants… to mirror failure framed on the shelf

No one wants… to question… the power within of self
                   n... still
No one knows… the constant torment inside
No one knows… the daily battles for pride
No one knows… the damage of your health
No one knows… the emptiness in its 
wealth

On my knees I cry… and wish I could pray
But the faith that it evokes… escapes me everyday
What I bleed and cry for… is tattooed and
ingrained
The tears inside… simply anoint me by name


Alone I stand… Alone I cry
Alone I paid… Alone I must fly….

i just wanted to stop by and say hello and read/reread some of your words. i love this one, not so much the pain in it that you've conveyed, rather, the excellent execution of thought, flow and content. bravo. i picture you standing before a large crowd stating your case. very emotional, and isn't that what it's about ?

Thanks my friend for the revisit....and....you are correct on the emotional stand front...this piece was very emotionally charged for me on so many levels...and....YES....that is exactly what writing is all about for me...to be able to convey a feeling with written words in a way that once read....the experience takes on an attack of some kind of reaction from the reader itself....I think that feeling the words are just as effective ( if not more so ) as simply reading them...getting someone to experience your mind's eye is a beautiful thing if it can be done....I strive that one day anything I put pen to paper to, will have such an effect....I HOPE....take care as always....Cher

Bit of genius in emplying the ellipses on a repetitive vertival line. Without them, this poem would still read smoothly, but would not be half so memorable. Harv

I am impressed....I tend to do that alot for slight pause and emphasis in the flow....but I will be TOTALLY HONEST with you....I was unaware of the name to that exact style until now and even had to google it to be sure....lol....so I thank you for my lesson and I so appreciate you commenting and enjoying this write....thanks so much for your time...Cher
