How You Saw Me

Posted: November 1, 2017 in Uncategorized

I don’t want to be the future I have envisioned
I don’t want to turn gray and squint to see the words
strain to hear the voices.

I don’t want to feel that I have had too much
I don’t want to need more anymore
I don’t want to lose my voice.

I want the clarity the energy the courage to speak the words
they touch when enfeebled flesh cannot.

I don’t want to need your understanding
I make no demands for the unattainable.

I will listen say what I can try not to let my ineptitude show through
try to use my aching crooked back to carry what should be borne.

If I am then better it would be in service to how you saw me.
