Iíll never be
considered dangerous
though I sail on dangerous seas

Iíll never strike
fear in another
for intimidation
I am not wired

Iíll never make
a good liar
with a transparent
countenance of guilt
am I cursed
or blessed

Iíll never deny
a soul itís freedom
we were born to soar
else why give us wings
and a limitless sky?

Iíll never choose
violence to express
my frustration, anger
I am no pacifist
possessed I am
with a fierce
desire for justice
yet I am neither an aggressor

I will never bruise
or beat to subject
another to my will, desire
or to teach a lesson
to do so is to wreck
a masterpiece
by deity designed
and manufactured
in a motherís womb

I am tender hearted
by deeply felt emotion
overcome at times
some may say a wimp
at most a bore
I will always be me
a sometimes wise man, a poet
such is the *quintessence
of my dust

* Nod to Shakespeareís ďHamletĒ
