This is Irony

I try to be a person,
A man in a world of man,
And when that fails,
I try to be myself,
How Ironical,
That people misunderstand,
They interpret my true being,
For something totally else,

When people see me for who I’m not,
It makes me feel like I’m Not.

Style / type: 
Free verse
Review Request (Intensity): 
I want the raw truth, feel free to knock me on my back
Review Request (Direction): 
How was my language use?
What did you think of the rhythm or pattern or pacing?
Last few words: 
I like my poems to be understood by all people, not necessarily the ones who know how to break down a Shakespeare to the minute details. Have I accomplished it here?

I understand...Welcome to Neo! Hope you find lots of people who understand what you write and it brings you pleasure.

It seems that the days and hours that people
are available for chatroom are staggered and
not a good match for most everyone. How about
if everyone just shows up at the door, whenever
they have a few free minutes?

why eye vision of others
that's what I meant

You are right. what I describe in my poem is what happens if you do take a glimpse at their direction. Thanks for the feedback!!

I like the idea here and the execution.

"To fly is to fall."

nice piece...

not too sure about the last line. that second 'not'

seems like your piece will be well understood by most folk.
