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.
