Encore

I doubt that you’d believe me if

I told you how I felt

I doubt that you would bear in mind

all the things that you’ve been dealt

I doubt that you would be okay

if I told you my doubt

because if you saw what I see

you’d know what it’s about

You doubt yourself, you doubt your life,

you doubt what you hold dear,

you doubt the things that bring you joy,

and in doubt you welcome fear

Just hear me when I say to you

that you don’t need me now

but when you do the stage is set

even at the final bow

I usually write these things not knowing where they’re headed. This was no exception except the narrator came off a little creepy to me. Maybe not. I’ll leave the interpretation to the reader.

      1. We’re cheering on all the poems’ narrators who pursue excellence—notably those favoring Les Miserables, godly dreams, and blues. Thanks for asking—doing well overall. 😁💙 Hope you and your family are staying safe, healthy, and joyful.

      2. Les Mis again! You might just have to join the Unnecessary Blog 😁 Glad you’re doing well. I’m doing alright myself, a lot going around me though. I haven’t been near as active on here as I’d like.

        Second, what an honor that you would even consider adding me to the Unnecessary Blog.

      4. The Les Mis story is 🔥 If you’re talking about the musical too then we’ll have to agree to disagree 😱 lol
        If you ever want something published on here, say the word.
        And thanks. It’s always good to be back.

      5. I’m thrilled for the opportunity to publish with you all! I’ll certainly be in touch! My joy is tempered by the sadness that you don’t share a connection with the musical. We agree the story itself is 🔥 For that I’m grateful. Nonetheless welcome back 😂
