The Thinker

I am the thinker
some loathe my existence
some merely try to ignore it.

I say things that others
are afraid to dream of.

I am let loose on this world.
the havoc of thought I leave
in my wake lies scattered
in letters, words, and phrases
days in dazes in misplaced spaces.

I am glad you can relate. This means that I did my job as a poet. Thanks.
