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
