What Do I Know?


 Here's day seven's submission of NaPoWriMo (a poem a day for the month of April in honor of National Poetry Month):


What Do I know?


I’m not going to do it.
I said that once or twice.
and pushed myself away from the fence.
The fence I was sitting on.

No. You’re wrong.
I’ve been known to argue.
Offending the person I directed that toward.
Not caring because I knew I was right.

Go this way.
I have directed with my hands and words and feet.
Not knowing if I was heading the right direction.
Or the wrong one.

I wish I hadn’t done that!
I’ve said to myself more than once.
I spin around in a circle.
But then, what do I know?
