Desideration

written by: Leanne Howard Kenney

@neeneebucket

 

I wish, I wish, I wish, I wish, I wish, I wish
I knew
Why I am the way that I am
Oh how I wish I knew

Why do I have big green eyes
That sometimes turn to blue?
Is it because they have memorialized
Everything I have been through?

And what about these ears?
They can hear
Here, there and everywhere.
Even when others take reasonable care,
My ears are there,
It is psychological warfare.

I wish, I wish, I wish, I wish, I wish, I wish
I knew
Why I am the way that I am
Oh how I wish I knew

Why am I so sick
And it cannot be licked?
Why am I depressed
And make everyone's life a mess?

Why here I stay
When so easily could I slip away?
And notice, no one would
No difference do I make in my neighborhood.

And I wish, I wish, I wish, I wish, I wish, I wish
I knew
Why God is so cavlier
While I here remain
Blear
Searching again
For the Juggler vein.

Apparently, I am a former writer.
Well, that is not quite true.
I have been writing poetry on my own for quite a while. And, I have been writing the odd article here and there for my own and my friends' pleasure for years.
I started posting my poetry approximately a year ago. Where they came from, I know not.
I am just glad they came.
I hope you enjoy what I have to say.
