30.Say the Opposite

I’ll oppose whatever you say,
How can I help?
This is not my habit,
This is my nature.

Opposing you makes me feel
I am different from you
Disappointment on your face
Fills my heart with joy
Impression this makes on others
Is not bad for my image.

If you really want me to agree
Say not what is there in your mind
Say just the opposite of
What you really want to say.

Should I say 'bad one'?
Actually I want to say 'Good one'. :)

Yes, I think it is one of those ordinary ones - neither good nor bad! Obviously, everytime, you cannot produce gems. Keep posting whatever you write. At the most, you may not include one like this in your "Anthology".

hmm... interesting... this one made me think hard... is it malice that says this? or is it some calm sense of some kind that knows and accepts?

A nicely composed poem.
