As I sit here
Listening to you talk
About what you have read
What it means to you

What about me
Is what I feel important
Or are you always right
Your word is law

You know it is not so
You have said as much
But why do you not listen
What is wrong with me

Absolutly nothing
I am human and human I am
Nothing more, nothing less
Just like you

But why do you not listen
What make what you say true
And makes what I say false
When is it my turn


My first poem on the comeback trail from writer's block.  It is comming back.  My poetry that is.


 "Life's greatest mystery isn't the meaning of life. To love and be loved is the meaning of life. Now how to attain those is the greatest mystery of all."

Scorched Dragon-
This sounds like someone who is
taking control.
I like the power and the flow.

'I am human and human I am' - Yes, indeed.

'When is it my turn' - Could it be now?

Great 'comeback trail' ride.

A rather large statement in a few words.  Welcome back to writing.  Keep it up.  
Powerful!  We could all learn to listen more and remember one persons beliefs and feelings are theirs and not to be dismissed.
You said it all here.

See, I told you so. "If you did it before, you can do it again." It's in there, you just have to let it out.

Beatiful poem! If you could come up with one this good, believe me, you've got plenty more just waiting to get out.

I'm looking forward to many more.  ~Gene

Yeah...this poem makes a lot of sense.
Actually, more than I'd care to admit!

This really made me think, S.D. Thanks.

P.S. Did you read "The Explanation"? I kinda wrote that for you, thought you'd like to know!

First I want to say that I thank you all for your responses.  I really didn't expect this many.  Second is that this place is truely family(or atleast what one should be) to me, thanx.  Next is that this poem was written out of the experiences I have had at the various churches I have attended.  Last is to Little Spyro, I will be reading that piece next. Thanx. Love you all.
