1.not seemly; not in keeping with established standards of taste or proper form; unbecoming or indecorous in appearance, speech, conduct, etc.:
an unseemly act; unseemly behavior.
It seems I may have been unseemly.
Some think I should be more in keeping,
With established standards of taste,
Or proper form;
That my behavior is unbecoming
Or indecorous in appearance,
In my behalf: isn’t that exactly the point?
To get ‘out of the box?’
To move beyond your comfort zone?
To seek new areas of yourself that need to be realized?
I’m exploring here people!
There is nothing wrong with me,
Don’t worry or be concerned (about what?)
One day your self may actualize
The inner boy meets the outer man.
This has been waiting a long time to show itself and I won’t turn away just because
It might seem to be unseemly, right?
What taboos have you left unanalyzed?
If you wish to be judgemental look to yourself.
That’s what I’m doing.
Our world, the one you and I constructed,
Is too seemly, and often
The seams are invisible
Until you cross one.
So I’m keeping on, learning what I think is unseemly:
Not being in touch with my feelings,
Hiding or lying about myself,
Turning away from someone who needs me,
Not crying in sad movies,
Saying one thing and doing another,
Lying to myself
Lying to children,
Not giving my stuff away.
When I examined pain so as to better understand those who were hurting,
Was that unseemly?
It would seem not .
