Confessions of an unsophisticated poet, who doesn't want you to know it,
but with this entry will blow it.

Am I Dense? Trois-par-Huit Challenge

I don't know,
but don't want it to show,
what some poetry is all about.

Am I ignorant or are others pretending
the Emporer's new clothes are not condesending?

Some poems just don't make any sense.
Giving up all pretense,
Am I dense?

Good for you, that you 've written a Trois - par - huit. I am still considering the possibility but I don't know:) counting syllables is not my favorite activity:D

About your poem: I like it, you illustrate the problem well. I personally believe that everything happens for a reason, everything has a meaning, purpose. Maybe not for me but for someone else.

Maybe what feels meaningless for me is meaningful, giving for someone else and as long as it doesn't harm anyone then I have nothing to say .-. . that is my way of thinking . . . thank you for giving me the opportunity to reflect upon this :)

. . . and as you understand I can not tell you if you have make a mistake because I still don't know how to write a T-P-H:)

But I like your poem so*applause*
