What shall I make of you

Not quite round,
Not quite square,
Can’t fit in this box
I have for you here.

.You can’t think that!
Let alone utter it.
People like you,
Must take what you get..

Taking up space,
As if you own it.
Standing so tall,
You’d better go sit!

.I’ll teach you
For acting ‘all that’,
How dare you defy me!
I’m all you’ve got..

But no, you insist
On just being you.
Tell me, dear girl,
What shall I make of you?

Blog address:

My name is Larisa and I am from Jamaica. I love writing, traveling, and observing people (including myself). My writing is informed by these observations, especially my poems. I also write academic-type stuff connected to my work and what I’ve studied: I’m a tourism management professional and I do research on poverty reduction and economic development through tourism and social interventions. All-in-all, I’m a writer and I love the feeling it gives me to put words to thoughts and sights.

If you would like to have your work published in The Poetry Bar send your poem, a few words about yourself and the link to your blog to the e-mail poetrybar1@gmail.com
