I am real


Colour me however you want to

Paint me in ways that disappoint you

Love me in so many different shades of grey

Hate me in so many kinds of different ways

But understand I am not a pawn in your game

Though you’d like me to I’d say no way

No matter what you think or how you feel

Everything I am is authentic and real.

  2. Just seeing this now. This is heartbreaking… πŸ˜­πŸ’”(words nor emoticons can’t describe the depth of it). But I can truly relate. And it hurts, so bad, to feel misunderstood. But still, in my case, I just keep trying, and failing, and trying again.

    Hope you do too.

    Sometimes I feel shy or confused about your content, and/or the images (speaking of blushing), but your poetry is downright amazing. Reaches to the gut level, as well as the spirit. I’ve thought so ever since you first “followed,” and liked my second blog’s posts, way back when (β€” and I’m so, so grateful you did β€” even though at first I wasn’t sure if you were a bot ;))).

    I think Kara’s right (–hang onto her πŸ’–… she’s seems like a true good’un πŸ˜‡πŸŒΈπŸ˜πŸ€©)
    …though of course none of us on this gorgeous earth is perfect (except perhaps imperfectly so; and thank goodness)… you are beautiful. Astoundingly beautiful.

    And I suspect many people think that.

    Possibly over 4000 of us… or more. πŸ™‚βœ¨πŸŒ»


    • p.s. just realized that bot thing might be misunderstood… I didn’t mean it in relation to your poetry of course. I meant in the sense that I thought you might be a “fake-liker,” in the beginning, because you didn’t seem to comment. I know you’re “real,” now, since I realize you do comment sometimes… and
      I also know there are as many reasons for not commenting as there are people and circumstances; not least of them being common sense, hehe.

      Geez, I keep blundering. And I keep telling myself I should give up on commenting, and even on blogging, because I never get it right… but still I continue, plodding ever onwards, adding words where they are likely not needed/wanted… especially all over WP (it’s not just you I bombard… so don’t feel too bad πŸ˜„πŸ€¦πŸΌβ€β™€οΈπŸ€“). I type too fast. Or think too slow. ⚑️🐌

      Apologies… and I will try to be more quiet and peaceful, henceforth. (No promises, lol… but it would probably be a good thing, for me as well. I think the Tree would agree. πŸ˜‰ πŸ™ 🌱)

      Keep shining your poetic light… and dark, Faux. Can’t have one without the other… ;)) πŸ˜‡πŸ˜ˆ πŸ’›β€οΈŽ β˜―οΈπŸβœ¨πŸ‘―β€β™‚οΈπŸ”₯ #rockon
