These Words of Mine

When I open the door
When I let them fly
These words of mine
That have NO reason
To be hidden

I have NO reason
Not to say these things
To open up
To tell everyone

I have NO reason
To be hidden
To fade into the wood work
NO reason
To be like the rest

There is NO reason
To change myself
To meet their expectations

But there is EVERY reason
To meet my own
To be myself

When I open the door
Given the choice
What will YOU decide?

Oh this is bad...bad meaning good...i like it cuz its my attitude...daily...very good write!

A poem begins as a lump in the throat, a sense of wrong, a homesickness, a lovesickness. It finds the thought and the thought finds the words.

Robert Frost (1875-1963) American Poet.
