I am

I am different, so go ahead and laugh. I wonder what life would have been like had I not wondered from the path. I hear the tears falling from those you think are happy. I see through your beautiful glass mask, and it’s not pretty. I want to be able to love. I am different, so go ahead and laugh. I pretend that everything will be perfect. I feel like everything is so far away, but it’s not. I touch the energies of the full moon in the night sky. I worry that the man in my dreams isn’t real. I cry for those who take a razor to their heart. I am different, so go ahead and laugh. I understand that your pain is real. I say things I mean, but wish I never said. I dream of your face, but more of your heart. I try desperately to love, but I can’t. I hope for everything that I can’t have. I am different, so go ahead and laugh. (This is an I am poem I worte in my english class.)

this is an amazingly honest and beautiful write. it is often good to be different. I always felt that way, especially in my younger days. it seems you have a great capacity for love, but maybe are afraid of getting hurt. I wish you all you are wishing for yourself. keep writing and reach for the stars. dreams do come true. thanks so much for your cute comment on my dessert poem : )). love, shar
