I NO LONGER SEEK TO PLEASE

Does someone read my lines
and fail to understand?

 

I know that I read lines
and find my comprehension taxed
while others read those lines
applauding as they do.

 

 

And they might scan my poems
and take a dim view  of my muse.

 

It’s hard for me to tell
just where I fit
within the panoply of words
that line so many pages.

 

I think that once I sought some praise
for my delineation’s
but I no longer seek to please one
other than myself.
