Of arrogant poets

I refuse

A like for a like,

And to follow

Because I am followed.

It's not that if you don't love,  I die,

It isn't the little heart you click,

That keeps me alive.

Don't take me wrong

I am just not giving in

To this blind regime

Who, calling themselves social,

Creep in

Unsuspecting lives.

Adjudged by snobs like me

Who refuse 

To being obligatory

Or comment to crush,

A soul with a word.

But, please also consider

How insignificant my words would be

If they were to praise every being

For lesser things

Just because they loved me.

'Read me with a song' -Partita No.3 in E major, Bach

  1. I strive to be unaffected by praise or blame. I love your work and read like and comment as I am compelled to. I’m not here to please anyone but those who are pleased. If you are not, That says more about you than me or my message.
