The other guy

I'm just a Guy with brown eyes, 
Those who know me say I'm nice. 
A friend of friends to begin, 
But I like to laugh and make you 
My life is the same yet unlike most, 
Odd are the things worth a boast. 
And my achievements do not 
I'm like most that enjoys my life. 
I've lived and have loved deeply, 
Felt sadness and known what wrath 
Seen life from out many windows. 
Some from plans, cars, or hotels. 
Life is a step like passing days, 
Dinner has came from tables or 
Love has left me speechless in 
I've been treated like a bum to a 
Stood in line, also bypassed to the 
Life can cause you to say, What! 
I'm down to earth which is 
I'm only what this life has made me.
And even then I'm always changing,
The simple life of laughs and peace.
To enjoy my ups and coming 
And knowing being down isn't 
I'm just a Guy with brown eyes, 
A man as life could only define...

    I think the structure or the flow was SLIGHTLY lacking in parts, but in saying that I think it's very relatable and I enjoyed it. It was very honest. :)
