I Am She

I Am She

It Is She

Worry, why do I worry?
Nothing seems to change.
At least not yet.
I am crazy anyway.
Everybody says the same.
Everybody agrees! Strange....
the way they all agree on that.
I just wish they weren't so sure
But it isn't real to me just yet.
But, they should all agree,
I should be the leader...
Because I am:
"She who should be listened to."

There are times when my life
seems so low, so very low.
There is no easy way.
I have got to let go!
Living seems to get
harder each day
Then there comes the day
Everything seems to go my way.
The red bird sings
In the old apple tree.
And the breeze begins to blow..
The grass waves a yellow wave
The tumbleweed  is calling me,
As the wind tosses it to and fro.

Nature delivers it right to my doorstep.
My mind steps in to sort it all out
Then it tells me..  what you're thinking!

Sitting there laughing at me
At first I don't care
Just go ahead and stare
Don't think I don't know
what you are thinkng
You should be able to give
Your heart without thinking
I know your thoughts
To give me your heart
You don't need a reason
Close your eyes,
Give me your hand.
Give me your heart.
Foolish heart,
I been in love before.
Heed my warning:
I've been wrong before.

Am I worth keeping?

Well done, Mandi. A very well thought out visualization of what weighs us down sometimes. People feel down, I think, when they compare their world to other people's worlds. Bad move, it's apples and oranges, more often it's closer to apples and cinder-blocks. Everyone's number one job, as I see it, is to please themselves. If the protagonist in your poem took that view, I bet she'd feel a whole lot better : )

Mandi, this poem touched my heart. Yet again, you are not crazy. We all long for love and acceptance. Always remember that you are worthy of both. God bless you.

This line is plain and simple, "Close your eyes, Give me your hand." How can anyone deny you with such a phrase as that..................Well written, Mandi..................g



my goal is to win one contest before I die tthat give me about 15-20 years , I hope



Well, keep your poetry flowing, and it will come to pass........keep the ball out of the gutter, and you will score high......................g

In science one tries to tell people, in such a way as to be understood by everyone, something that no one ever knew before. But in poetry, it's the exact opposite.

Franz Kafka (1883-1924) Czech writer.
