Never Improving Always The Same

Looking for an answer but not listening to words,
speaking without thinking and unleashing a world of hurt,
asking questions and trying to improve,
learning to shut up and let others do the work.

Seeking an answer in deserts of words,
lashing out with vocabulary not intended to cause pain,
taking for granted the people who have always been there,
feeling like dying when they leave.

Taking the answers and keeping them to myself,
learning new meanings and paths to tread,
improving but still no better than before,
learning to shut up and let others do the work.

I like the way you use the repetition of a line, in your recent work. it can be very effective, Laura. you strike the right balance by alternating the repeat, so it is more interesting to absorb. good work, my friend
Laura, I think this is a very good poem, a lot of the frustrations we all have along our daily path.
