Camouflage Why Not


Stay where you are
Disappear if you must
Stay at the back
Or have yourself locked

You must never be seen
Never be in sight
You should know where you stand
You should know beforehand

If possible camouflage
Don't make any buzz
For if you're not in sight
Things will be alright

Fancied you are not
Keep quiet speak not
I know you are shy
But someday you'll get by.

    A wonderful poem. Many things are well said, unsaid. Yet.....

    There is a lot to be said for poets using their words to get their point across. You have done this very well. :) (Report) Reply

    The title captivated me, and it did not disapoint, your direct with your observations, but that is something I enjoy is the clearity in language and the texture of your meaning. I get a feeling of frusteration being locked in a society that judges differences. Sad but wise (Report) Reply

    It is like a warm glowing friend helping a child to overcome fears
    and done in great feelings of affection and beauty.
    Good to see you writing again my friend

    very motivating...
    nice nice...it's like a reverse psychology for someone who is shy in expressing one self
    but you have a very positive ending....a push for her to go out from her shell...
    inspiring, challenging...your poem is worth a nice..nice smile....
    ganda...kakaaliw.....mapipilitan ang isang tao na maging strong and gutsy...

Poem of the Day

poet Sara Teasdale

Only in sleep I see their faces,
Children I played with when I was a child,
Louise comes back with her brown hair braided,
Annie with ringlets warm and wild.
