Being Somewhat Honest

Being Somewhat Honest
by Polby Saves

In that awful, awkward silence
I'll speak up, I like to break things
Down, even further
A quarter past any given half hour
Is when I attend and then
Only until 20 minutes into the new
Hour
And it is only w/ great effort on my part
That, Yeah... I'll say something
Being careful to cover my contempt, combativeness
Disguise my defiance, dissonance & disgust
Into a comment w/ the underlying tone of a question
When I'm done
Someone will inevitably offer the inevitably correct response
To a query that wasn't really asked at all
As I knew they would before I uttered anything at all
It's important to make people feel important - helpful - useful
It has little to nothing to do w/ me and I realize that
It's my attempt at a gift.

I look out the window all i see is a bird.<br />
And as it takes flight i remember something i heard.<br />
That we are all Gods creatures on this planet of ours<br />
Even the grass the trees and the flowers.<br />
and every thing that has been and gone.<br />
Are a part of me as we are all one.<br />
And lifes just a game and we all play our part.<br />
I love you my friend with all of my heart.<br />
And if thats your attempt at a gift.<br />
I hope that my poem will give you a lift.
