Most Vocal Critic

My sister Pat says my words
are too big,
that I lose my audience
due to this.
By far, most people just don’t
give a fig;
Anything over one’s head’s
just a miss. 
My vocabulary’s filled
With nonsense,
And no one bothers to find
the meaning.
No one wants their reading to
be so dense
What I think’s clever is just
Why can’t I just write simple stuff
About flowers and family and life?
Why isn’t that enough
without dredging up 
the dark, unhappy strife?
While I swim through depressing depths,
most people splash and play in shallows.
They laugh out loud, don’t hold their breath.
Real humor doesn’t come from gallows.

    it hurts but they'll always be critics, this I know well. "you'll never make anything out of that writing, but if I succeed by impacting 1 person, I am a successful writer. My reason for writing. Your poem , or shall I say verse is very well expressed, thank you for allowing us to read this. Take good care & God Bless PS can't please everyone....
