Tell Them

If they ask you of me,
Tell them u did not see me,
Though you can see it is me,
But tell them you did not see me.

The former me has faded away,
Now am new as a new born baby,
Tell them am saying bye to vanity,
Carelessness and waywardness.
Tell them i have been claimed by
The lovely unseen,
Tell them he made me matured,
I am no more like a vulture,
So,can no more be tortured.

When i was deadly like a bullet,
He made me calm and peaceful like a pullet,
When i was like carmeleon 
He liken me to a champion.

Let ears hear different of me,
Let eyes see different of me,
Let the nose perceive different of me,
Even as a sweet fragrance.
The mouth,utter no more courses,
Tell them of me,my newness and me,
Please tell them for me.

    This my friend is a truly great write! Ending stanza just adds the icing to cake... And this slays... "The lovely unseen, Tell them he made me matured, I am no more like a vulture, So, can no more be tortured." Big congrats on this gem being featured this week!

    In this poem the person wants to tell them he lost his old ways and is a new person. Everyone can change for the better. It is in realizing that he can be master of his own fate. This one bares the soul of the person who says "tell them" and he realizes the change within. Excellent. God Bless phyl
