My reflections

I am the 
enigma 
the 
world 
has 
failed to 
understand
i am a 
mystery 
beyond 
my own 
comprehension
i stood 
toe to 
toe with 
the 
agents 
of 
disdain,
and 
smiled.

i 
perpetually 
root for 
the 
underdog.
i dwell 
in the 
underground,unconventional, 
genre.
i'm 
fascinated 
by 
villains.

my 
heart is 
lost on 
an 
island in 
fiji,
i'm 
saving 
up miles 
to re-
unite 
with her.

i'm not 
one for 
conventions, 
but i 
adjust,
i try.
compromise 
has 
always 
been an 
option.
i abhor 
cliches 
but i live 
with 
them.
i've 
never 
been 
content 
with 
mediocre,
but the 
earth 
somehow 
expects,ordinary,
to 
suffice.

Words, 
my tool, 
gift and 
weapon.
i always 
seem to 
be at 
odds 
with the 
elements,
my 
supposed 
wingman.
Money, 
the fuel 
of 
existence,
i desire 
above 
others

In a 
nutshell,
there 
goes my 
reflections.
Rather, 
some of 
it.

    Usually, I'm in the middle, near the top, or at the bottom of the winners' list. This is my first 'top spot', and I'll cherish it. I'm on several poetry sites, but poetrysoup is by far the standout platform for budding and accomplished poets/writers. And Linda a.k.a Poet Destroyer, you've been a regular feature in my poetrysoup lifespan. I appreciate. Thanks for the overwhelming support. Some speech, eh?. Lol. Thanks everyone.
