What do you See? Feb/5/2019 – So unlikely…

pinterest-free-image

So unlikely yet so likely,

I looked again to see what I thought was an illusion.

 

In the tent sat the boy who hated girls

He played his hand, joined in the laughter

I was amazed as he gave women a hard time

His female teachers disliked him with a passion.

 

So unlikely yet so pleasing,

I looked again to see what I thought was an illusion.

 

He looked up as if he saw no problem,

The girls called on him to deal

His joy was obvious, his face alight with acceptance,

There was a soft side to him after all.

 

So unlikely yet so satisfying,

I looked again to see what I thought was an illusion.

 

On return to school, he was a different boy

He appeared relaxed as if a burden had been removed

He was confident, more personable

His female teachers saw and delighted in the new him.

 

So unlikely yet so affirming,

I looked again to see what I thought was an illusion.

    Like that refrain; it seems to give the poem a mysterious air 🙂
