POETRY
If that's what you want to call it!

Vasilios Gardiakos


 

Self Criticism

 

I am honest
but not a good poet.

My poems are too short

and do not rhyme!

 

 

 

Streams of Possibilities
 

Instead of writing star where did I wrote it here
My life and yours would be different I fear

Put the dot here. not over there

Perhaps I have created a nightmare

 

 

 

Clueless

 

I donít know what to say.

 

 

 

 

The Unfinished Poem

 

And barely started

 

 

 

This Poem Contains Twelve Words

 

That is if you count the title.



 

A Short Poem


Short!


 

 

I Am Pissed!

 

Babies are dying in Tsunamis

People are killing each other in wars.

And I am pissed that I canít find a parking space.

What a crazy existence!

The Reason (1977)

 

There's a reason for everything

And the reason for immortality is

to give us time to find the reason
 

 

You Always Get your Way

 

No I don't

Yes you do

No I don't

Yes you do

No I don't

Ok, you don't

Yes I do!

 

 

Wanted: Why am I me and not some one else? Someone wrote a wonderful poem that entertained this or a similar concept. If you find this poem, please email it to me.

 

On March 15, 2009 Steve Homewood responded to my request and sent me this poem 'Why Am I Me?'. It comes from the 1975 Broadway musical Shenandoah by John Cullumin. This is how it goes:

 

Tell you what I'm thinkin'

Honestly and true...

How come I come to life as me

And not to life as you?

 

Lord I know the feeling

'Cause when I'm by myself

I wonder why

I'm who I am

And not somebody else

 

Way down underneath it all

Where no one gets to see

I bet it feels no different

Bein' you or bein' me

 

Why was I born

When was I born

Who I was born to be

Why was I given

The body I am livin' in

Why am I Gabriel?

Why am I Anderson?

Why am I me, why am I me...

 

 

I am not totally convinced this is the poem I was looking for so if you find one like it send it to me. I should add that I am very happy with it and thank Steve for sending it to me.
