Standing Upright

This poem is related to an incident, where I was about to be run down when the main problem was not me. It was like pointing gun at me to hide ones own deed. That’s the best defence mechanism, to divert from the subject. But I didn’t give up & proved my point, backed by others. I did learn though not to be so blunt with my words. I’m a person with my own meaning & I’m not the type who simply say “yes” or roger that to everything, when I don’t even mean.

I hear they are scared of me
Afraid to approach & talk to me
First you put that blame on me
Then you try to take a hit on me

You fear I’m that crazy volcano
Ready to explode & destroy your yappity yap canoe
Burn the waters you’re sailing on
Coz I’m the intense fall of the Canyon

Unwilling to cooperate
You tell me I just operate
Simply deny to solve what you point at
With no copy or roger that

I heard so many allegations
You ran me down with accusations
I lost for a moment the sensation
So I ended up in total confusion

You wanted me to find the solution
I needed to be fixed was the conclusion
There was a huge interference in the discussion
So I left the things in shock & desperation

That night was gloomy & dark
The kick in the guts was deep & hard
It kept me awake in my thoughts
Replaying that scene was painful & odd

That scene brought me back to the senses
I went out for a walk in my 10’s
I kept asking myself the hows & the whys
My voice was heavy when I looked up at the skies

But to give up at this stage, wasn’t in my mind
My dear ones were there for me & stood by my side
The facts in my head, I started to write
To make you realize that hit wasn’t alright
So here I stand tall & upright
