Reality

You might call me misguided † †  
rude, uncalled for, or offensive † †  
based on the past † †  
you may see no reason to respond † †  
† † †
If civility and nobility be required † †  
an acceptable way to take in you † †  
then distinctively I fail † †  
regretting your disdain † †  
† † †
Any path that I find successful † †  
is dependent on your positive regard † †  
and variables are always † †  
mine to control † †  
† † †
How the effect of my words †  
rely on many things † †  
I canít control my ethnicity † †  
nor can I consistently beat aging † †  
† † †
I canít alter your past interactions † †  
with others of my gender † †  
and you havenít shared † †  
what makes you tick † †  
† † †
I most decidedly react to garments † †  
you wear but that is a choice † †  
made independent of my guidance † †  
even an absolute control canít rule † †  
† † †
And much smarter humans † †  
make a strong case my † †  
fate is guided by an unavoidable † †  
most basic need † †  
† † †
So let me not waste your time † †  
if your exclusive focus is profit † †  
at a most minimal cost † †  
in terms of personal knowledge shared † †  
† † †
I bid you the best as you go you way † †  
and I go mine an admirer † †  
but accepting because I feel † †  
this way doesnít compel me to respond
