Last month I made a poem. It only took me a few minutes though 'cause I didn't mind if it rhymed or not or if it used fancy words, I just kept writing.
The next day, I showed it to my best friend and asked for her interpretation. She wasn't good at poetry, but she's not terrible either. Her interpretation was wrong.
I went around and showed it to my other friends and also asked for their interpretations. Some interpretations were applicable, but they were no where near my original message. I even asked the smartest people I knew. One of them said he hated it, while one of them said it was about me. Applicable and quite good too, but still too far from my original message.
Up to this date I keep asking people for their interpretations but they either say they don't understand or they gave the usual wrong interpretations.
I was just hoping I could find someone here who would get the original message...
Stop, don't leave me here
And don't expect me to save you.
To walk with me is your choice
But to help you isn't mine.
Don't stop, even if I don't rhyme,
You shouldn't expect me to and neither should I.
So what if our shoes aren't the same size?
We both have feet, right?
Stay, but don't push me off--
Neither would I, if I could hold on.
It might be difficult, the equilibrium,
But at least none would get hurt.
Look away, don't melt my soul.
It isn't supposed to be liquid.
Melt me and I guarantee
Much worse would come back to you.
Don't fear me, I'm not a coyote
That'll gobble your existence up.
'Tis also for your sake, is it not?
And is it not also for mine?
But please do so, when things get bad.
Break the same rule we follow.
If it's for the other, don't worry,
You will still be able to stand again.
It's the same for me though
So don't shiver in fright.
As long as the see-saw is 180degrees,
Father won't kick you out yet.
Moreover, don't keep it inside,
You might get a heart attack.
Push me off once I get too heavy;
I'm ready to let go if it's for you.
Aren't things better this way?
The result is not undefined.
I'm sure you'll be pleased, and others too.
I don't have to prove it, you'll see.
