What I Ask of You

What I Ask of You short poem

Strange that you should judge me so unkindly,

I have been true, faithful; yes, I have loved you blindly.

Life’s twists and turns… bittersweet irony,

Precious little harmony; way too much acrimony.

Please listen to me if I need to talk,

Can you be a friend and not just mock?

If you’ve been blessed with strength and power,

Use it to help the weak ones flower.

Oh, who am I to speak like this?

I know you’ll think it all amiss!
