    Poem Commentary

    Never let the actions of others steer you from your center, from the love you should demonstrate no matter what situation you are in.

    ©2010 I love you still, do you?

    "Move it around, He'll think it misplaced"
    acts of mock kindness, well thought diversions
    "after all he isnt my real son and he's disgraced
    us all with his preferences and perversions."

    Did you try out of love? some mercy killing?
    or was it to save face, am I the stain you wont wear?
    Did I deviate too far from the norm into the unreal
    Will you ever be truthful? this deception I cant bear.

    I follow His word, I am kind to everyone
    I look for the good even in my worst enemies
    do you see my life as buried and done?
    did you ever have faith in me, in what I could be?

    I'll keep looking past your idiosyncratic ways
    though I know you hold me not in well esteem
    I do what is right with every passing day
    My God can you show me what it all means.

    No roads to a better future, living in an open cell
    just me , my thoughts and the will to write
    sometimes I feel the licking flames of hell
    I need more than their flicker for light.

    Despite all of this I still love you
    I wish I knew that you felt the same
    but you leave me wondering, what is truth?
    Is it just another in a line of fool's games?

    You've fallen so far from what is good
    lost in a world in which they wish you to be
    can you still do what you know you should?
    I wish you'd open your eyes and see.

    so full of emotion ! love it.....you've done poetry very proud with this passionate write. many great lines that kick hard and others that are so subtle and precious. "i need more that their flicker for light".....genius.

    To have great poets there must be great audiences too.
