IOI (7/4/1934 / Hebburn.Co Durham U.K)

Interpretation Is Everything

.

I wonder if the words I write.
Convey the message I intend
or must my messages depend
on how you read: What you perceive,
perhaps I’m failing to achieve
what I attempt and lose a friend.
Although I edit and amend
the thoughts and ideas I conceive.
The words I choose sometimes confuse
and lead my readership astray.
Excuses are of little use
it seem that when I try to say.
Something contrary to your views
You close your mind and turn away

the dilemma of a poet is the readers interpretation...But you wont be a good poet if you wont let your readers think about what you have written...Better be a writer or a common reporter to allow your readers get the true message of what you want to convey.....Each poet has its own style dont change it, yours have an originality. Or else you wont be IVOR.
