Unprepared 2

      Don't expect me to be prepared.
            To make do on my own outside
      leaves me uncertain, scared.
      Don't expect me to be prepared
      to venture out alone. Where'd
            you get the idea I'd've tried?
      Don't expect me to be prepared
            to make do on my own outside.

    Seems that people thing that since we are not in tears…we have no fears and are ready to face what is thrown at us….enjoyed your poem.

    thanks both

    this one was an outtake from back on nov 2 – interesting personal timing note is that i’m getting around to transferring it from paper up to electronic form at a time when i’ve actually been venturing outside on my own, without being forced & without having someone to fall back on – just to the park across the street & to the farmer’s market a few small blocks away, not like it’s any huge “stepping outside” into a whole life or anything, but for me it’s a big enough deal for this outtake piece to be one of my most heartfelt, such as it is
