For the Few That Know Me

They called for beauty when I wanted peace.
They called for structure though I wanted release.

When they called me for guidance, I wanted to say.
Please leave me alone, I just want to pray.

They never let go but I give them no choice.
For I answer the call of a different voice.

The poems I write may be foreign to you,
Emily Dickenson's probably was to.

Perhaps it wasn't written for you to understand.
But the poem could've been written by a dying man's hand.

Where only few understand why he penned it that way,
With their hearts they'll read it and know all the prose
as his ashes are spread and his spirit arose.
