Misdirection

I am unimpressed with
your big house
fancy car
designer suits
and your bank account

Spare me your suave swagger
slicked back hair
and demonstrations
of your self-appointed superiority
and uncouth sexual prowess

Don't bore me
with your little mind
imprisoned by little thoughts
your trinkets of dogma
make me yawn

Don't talk me to death
with the conquests of your faded youth
don't smother me
with grandiose ideas
of a future, miscarried long ago
from the womb of potential

Instead impress me with
the integrity in your character
the strength of your mind
the tenacity of your will
the wisdom of your experience

Show me the kindness in your smile
the warmth in your touch
the compassion in your eyes
the light in your soul
the love in your heart

Then, I am enamored of the Sun
held captive by your brilliance
my only desire, to cling to your every word
with wide-eyed amazement…
at the God that you are

Nothing to impress but wisdom I gain through with experience will speak for itself. read my stories maybe you will understand

I will check out your stories. Sounds like you've had enough experience yourself.

Awesome!! and soooo darn true to the facts of what is really impressive!

Aw, thank you, Sie!! :)

Wonder about such a Classy Manufactured Product !!!
Thank You.
Too Good for words.

Hi M, thank you for reading and commenting. I'm glad you enjoyed it. :-)

Wow Miss V, I din´t know you had these talents !!

Kudos to you !!

Reading your poem made me think of that song by Shania Twain that says :So you got the moves but have you got the touch ?

Thank you, UC! :-) I think that lyric in the song is a good match. The exterior flashiness is plastic to me. I want to know a person from the inside out - that's real, and that's what counts.

I was thinking of that same song when I read this.

I agree V.
Whenever we meet one of those plastic types we should make the face of McKayla Maroney and say I´m not Impressed !!

Amen!!!! Where is this guy you speak of???? lol!!!! Brilliant writing as always V!!!!!!

Aw, thank you dear!! :-) I wish I knew where he was!! I'd make sure he had a brother the same, so we could double-date!! lol Perhaps he is just a dream from my imagination...

Wonderful! Insightful as well. Thank you for sharing this.

Thank you, MB. Glad you enjoyed it. :-)
