I always admire a voice of conviction
Someone who is never afraid
To say what’s on their mind

Of hesitate to bring into view
The variables, no matter how “unkind”

Conveying the crux of what they believe
With sensitivity and direction

Saturating subjectivity with raw emotion
And progressive perceptions

I always admire an examiner
Who can see right through me
By revealing themselves

To the ones who find raw emotion despicable, these are also the ones who do not like to rake the leaves, but know they're stuck with it, so try not to make themselves quite as unhappy as usual. When one develops an ear for "Saturating subjectivity with raw emotion," then I'd say they have An Admirer. I admire you, Jude!

This is fabulous, Jude. I especially liked the last strophe.

Reviewed by L. Figgins 3/17/2006
Wow, kicker last line Jude. It IS revealing and somewhat scary as meaning can be misconstrued or misunderstood but thems the breaks. Better than drowning in a sea of mediocrity, mass-compliance and duplicity. Good one!

Splendid work again. Reread your book again this past week. I wish you many sales. You are gifted and speak so sweetly from the heart.

Best always,

Right in the heart of truth and courage! I like peole to say it freely and withiout an air of fear and suspicion. I dislike people when I see their tongues twisting into many directions trying to skip over truth which to them appears to be a danger spot.

GREAT POEM! Who can see right through me by revealing THEMSELVES.
I shall remember what I speak is coming from MY frame of references.
Thanks, Robert. Betty Torain

Lotta stuff here that shines the light of truth and perception. Yep.

They are rare and hard to find in this day and age of political correction, only a few will risk the condemnation that goes along with speaking ones mind and offering an open and honest opinion. This poem is a great encouragement to those who want to but are afraid to speak out.

I have to agree, Jude; you have expressed this most eloquently. Do you mean "or" in the fourth verse? Thank you for sharing your creative and insightful gift. Love and peace,

Inviting and subtly paradoxical lines that whisper with some intimacy the strengths of their own admirable "convictions." Enjoyed the read.

Superb poem, but I can't say I saw any "unkind" comments that would draw this conclusion...Though truth itself can be unkind...

Reviewed by Dawn Richerson 3/16/2006
excellent. just for the record, have oft been accused of being too direct & too quick to speak with conviction, so I try to be nice around here without sinking to the level of complete mutual admiration. not so sure I manage to strike that balance. really like the honest observations here, Jude. at the risk of getting written up in one of your future poems, think you meant "or" for "of" fourth line down. g'day to you, Dawn
Reviewed by Sherry Heim 3/16/2006
Delivery will determine whether words will be taken as unkind or as beneficial. There is a big difference between "direct" and "blunt" and between "arrogance" and "personal strength." There are many ways to tell the truth and being hurtful and/or excluding is rarely the right one. Understanding your audience is generally the key to how well you and your philosophies will be accepted. Talking about tight sexy bodies to a room full of pregnant woman would probably be a bad choice, unless, of course, you also like to tread water in a tank chummed for sharks. Cool write, Jude.
Take care,
