I Wonder Why

I\'m sitting here perplexed and trying to figure out the \"Why?\",

Wondering why my poems now only get one reply.

One poem had the subject of a person who was gay.

Now I see that no one has anything to say.

Does it matter what the subject of the poem is?

Even I am open minded not the reason \'tis!

Really does it matter what the poem contains?

Why does someone want me to pull back the reigns?

However I must say \"Young writers, please beware!\",

You will be judged by the words you use out there!
