If Only I Understood

A poem is something with meaning
Each word chosen with care
Something on different levels
That the poet wishes to share

Unless it is mine that your reading
That’s quite a different thing
Because if its depth you are seeking
I doubt it is something I’ll bring

I work on another fine level
Involving the life that I lead
Which makes no sense of the things that I do
So ‘Guilty your Honour’ I plead

Perhaps there is some kind of wisdom
Hidden beneath the veneer
But I am pretty well certain
That the meaning to me is not clear

If Only I Understood
