Black Poetry : Wouldn't it be Easier...

Wouldn't it just be easier
to just ask?
No, you figure it's better
to take on the mega task
Of trying to figure it out
on your own
Listening to others spin yarns,
then solving the puzzle all alone

Problem is, there's always
gonna be one piece missing
Like the reason why Georgie Porgie
even thought about all that kissing
Or how come Who stayed on first, Watz is
always second, and I Don't Know is on third
It wouldn't be easy, but I'd try to enlighten you
as to every ill informed story you ever heard

But you won't ask

I guess you just figure I'd lie or
not tell the whole story
But I'd tell you, no matter how
embarrassing the details, or how gory

Wait a minute...

That's actually not the reason why...
You won't ask because you might actually
find out why, that's the true alibi
You'd hear logic and reason
then be forced to deal
with each and every feeling
that you know is real

You don't own the rights
to the word, emotion
I'm filled with emotion too,
brimming with love and devotion
Such that you have probably
never experienced so intensely
The weight of which is difficult to bear
it's grown so immensely

My shoulders are so tired, and so
is my heart
Geez, this is the part
That makes me well up with tears
So I'll just end this by asking you,
Wouldn't it just be easier,
to ask?

YES! It's so much easier to ask...if we can get over our own pride and egos that is! What a good flow my sistah!

You would say so too? Glad you're feeling me here Rich, thank you.
I think it's both what you ask, and to who as well. Yes, we communicate wonderfully, :) awww. In being quiet, sometimes we can discover things that we can't amid all the noise. Thank you So'ja.
Thank you HopelisRomantic, that sure is the truth sis.

I'll be honest. I like black culture forums, so I've signed up for this one, BX, and Lipstick Alley. I won't post too often, only on things that I'm really interested in. Nice to meet you. :)
