Backwards Written
Author: Pamela O'Brien


If my words represent myself
Backwards written be must they
So the mirror image staring back at me
Am really I who portrays

Partially in order and control
Escaped have emotions certain
And their randomly cruel purpose
Love lost a with me burdens

If I tell you a little secret
Well as it keep to swear must you
Trust is something I've never felt and
Knew never I something is truth

The End
Beginning the only is

Wow! I am a little flattered by the reaction to this one! I guess I thought most of you would think I was backwards or something (lol)
Thanks all of you - it makes me want to keep writing when I hear your kind words.
