MISUNDERSTOOD

MISUNDERSTOOD

Sometimes the way I walk and a way I talk is noticed,

My words out loud are not always poetry spoken.

A look upon my face is perhaps seen as an angry glare,

To be safe is not always a smile shown, a distance kept.

Trust a little, just enough so that I am not fooled or taken,

Misunderstood I know I am, a judgment without knowledge.

Misunderstood as an appearance does not tell of who I am,

An impression to be observed, not always a story known.

  1. Bravo on this excellent portray! Your poetry is so very good! “To be safe is not always a smile shown, a distance kept”. ..indeed! So many people wear masks to be wanted,needed, and excepted. The truth can be a rude awakening. Keith, I hope you are putting all of your poems, and writing in a book? Your book would sell well. ☺️
