    i am not a poet. i thought that this was pretty okay, but then again as i said i am not a poet. i wrote it about a crack head lady. so please keep that in mind.plus, it has no title. *this is sooooooooooo old....1994 maybe*


    Why do you think of me as weird or different?
    How can I be?
    I am the same as you, just life has shaped me to be me!
    I have the same raging spirit as you,
    Only mine is weakened by the pain of my experiences.
    I have the same zest for life as you,
    Only mine has been trampled on because of my suffering.
    I have the same loveing heart as you,
    Only mine is influenced by the rejection I have felt.
    I have the same need for acceptance as you,
    Only mine is greater because you think of me as weird or different.
    How can I be?
    I am YOU, just MY version of you!

    well, I like the theme of it. I think its something that most people miss about life and how experiences mold you

    thanks gary, you are sweet. i do feel most people miss it and they look at others for a reason to dislike them....look for a reason that they are not like themselves...
    anyway, i am rambling, shower time and off to work i go.....

    These words, this poem, has such a clear persepective of equality.
    A seeing of the other as the same in essence, yet unique in the ways
    of self-expression and cultural environment. Sorrow and suffering balance spirit and strength. You have so much love for others.
