I Am One Of Many

                                         I am one of Many
                                 Who share this human shell.
                                    No one can understand
                                          How different 
                                             We all are.

                                             I am A Host
                                 To a cast of many characters
                                      Fighting for their time-
                                          For the freedom
                                           To live their lives.

                                          I am one of Many
                                   Who knows how precious
                                       Every moment of time
                                           We get to live
                                               Is a gift. 

                                           I am a Host
                              To twelve Altar Personalities
                                  Living on borrowed time
                                     To what I once called
                                               My life. 

                                       I am One of Many
                      Seeking acceptance and understanding,
                                 Dreaming of living my life
                                    Without having to share
                                      This shell of a body. 

                                    I am only one of Many…
                                        How many of us
                                          Can you love?

    I can love all twelve. But whether I LIKE them or not depends on the personalities. :)

    LOL! None are dangerous and all have the desire to just want to be accepted and loved. At times people's misunderstanding comes from the media version of this disorder. the ages of my altars range from age 6 to age 25. The do fear people at first because of how we have been treated in the past. But I have a few friends that have accepted them all and know when each one is out.
