WHAT YOU THINK – poem by Jean Kay

Day 27 of NaPoWriMo “I challenge you to think of a common proverb or phrase — something like “All that glitters is not gold,” then plug the first three words of the phrase into a search engine. Skim through the first few pages of results, collecting (rather like a poetic magpie) words and phrases that interest you. Then use those words and phrases as the inspirations (and some of the source material) for a new poem. Happy writing!” Here is mine.


 “What you think of me is none of my business”

is Terry Cole-Whittaker’s book title,

one I have often shared with those

who believed what you (others) think is vital.


Forget what you think you know about them,

it’s what you think about you that matters.

You are what you think so mind what you think

don’t let what you think be mindless chatters.


“Happiness is when what you think,

what you say, and what you do

are in harmony.” Mahatma Gandhi said.

Let what you think create happiness in you.


I write to find out what I’m thinking about.

Do you write to find out what you think?

What you think may differ from my beliefs,

so I’m interested in what you think.


Sometimes I think a word that you use

doesn’t mean what you think you say.

Mind what you think is accurate

in all uttered words you portray.


I wonder what you think about me now, but

“What you think of me is none of my business”.
