What Kind Of Man Am I?

What Kind Of Man Am I?

Who ever really knows a man . . .

What kind of man am I?
What do others think of me?
Do I live in my own private world?
Am I really what you see?
What makes me so suspicious?
Why can’t I just relax?
Are my criticisms just.
Or, are they wielded like an ax?

I don’t have all the answers.
The verdict isn’t in.
Few know how to judge me
from the signals that I send.
I’m like a cup of water…
about to spill cause I’m too full.
My personality is contrast.
Gentle lamb, to raging bull.
I’m a quiet, private person
who relies on concrete fact,
to make a firm decision
as to how I’m going to act.

When I watch, I’m too observant.
In my heart I take the view,
that when I add up one and one
the answer’s always two!
It’s hard for one to fool me.
Past experience makes it plain
that those who live by habit
will forever be the same.

My own suspicious nature
tells me not to move too fast.
That no-one tosses rocks around
inside a house of glass.
Those who do must realize
that it’s easy to foresee,
that their transparent shelter
will eventually cease to be.

When their glass world breaks and shatters,
and those involved all cry.
I’ll just move on to other worlds.
