My Words My Emojis

My Words My Emojis
By Dr Swati A Gadgil
My words my emojis
my smileys and roses
for someone every day,
some for my folks
and some for my pals
some for my gals and
some for my foes….
Am I pretentious
or am I genuine,
Am I the same
outside and within,
Am I the same
in crowd and lone,
Am I the same
in supine and prone?
Do I judge people
or am I judged,
My emojis and words
are they fudged…
do they mask me
do I know for sure
what is pure
and what is impure,
but one thing is certain
infantile smile can cure
white wash the fakes
and bury the flakes
silt or scum
wash off all aches,
Array of emojis
and long winding words
certainly have a fight
from the chirping birds
straight from the heart
my words my emojis
my smileys and roses
for someone every day…..

    The lines
    “certainly have a tough
    from the chirping birds “
    is puzzling , especially the use of the phrase , “ a tough “.
    Otherwise , this comes across as a fun poem with a light- hearted ambience about the art of expression .

  2. Louis Kasatkin

    Stylistically this is strongly evocative of the “Bubblegum Pop” songs of the late 60s & early 70s.Invariably bright and cheerful fulfilling the need for distraction from heavier issues.

    On a minor editorial note , the stumble over connecting words and birds ought to have been addressed prior to posting.

    Do I judge or am I judged..perhaps a bit of both..
    This light poem that does make us think of a lot of perfunctory responses on social media

    Am I the same
    in crowd and lone,
    Am I the same
    in supine and prone?…a different topic from the usual ones… very interesting .. yes it depends on who reads and how they interpret the emojis…
