Reading What I Wrote

Reading What I Wrote

Feed back about my work has been mixed lately, those that liked it read it aloud; those who didn't like it didn't. Once my poems were read aloud, those that didn't suddenly did. So, I post this advice: read my poems out loud, you might just hear something you didn't know was there...

Credentials

So, I heard an ad on the radio today
Something about Lasik surgery
A doctor claiming "great credentials"
Because he was acclaimed by Delta Sky Magazine
It makes me wonder
What "acclaims" prove to be "great credentials"
Something so out of place
Like an airline giving a doctor kudos
Is it deserved?
Do people really believe this?
Can I do the same?
No.
Not worth the headache
Of putting up with the pretense
Of trying to justify
Something I think so untrue
What you see, is what you get
Good, bad, or ugly
Well, especially ugly
Because without the ugly
There'd be no beauty
And beauty is what we all seek
Even if we can't see it for what it is
Love of the deepest kind
Within everyone, everywhere, somewhere.
