    I am Different

    Knowing my difference
    is not of my ego

    I hate my strangeness
    or I embrace it

    I am brilliant
    but there are many smarter than I

    I have hated
    and I have loved

    I am in love
    but I can’t define the word

    Words are my chosen tool
    but at times I am speechless

    I cherish my life
    as I waste each moment

    I seek to be gentle
    I long to be aggressive

    I question EVERYTHING
    and I find no answers

    I find simple statements
    that seem to be true

    I chase the truth
    through lies

    And there is more...

    Hi PoeticManifesta
    When I read your poem earlier
    I felt that you are unique
    Words are my chosen tool
    but at times I am speechless

    true to light you
    leave room for more
    because there is so much more
    I'm really digging this poem

    Peace

    i'm different but yet unique
    some look upon me as i'm the freak
    i get stares because i'm not a whitley or a sinclair
    But strange like Denise who has a unique style even to her hair
    i like it because i'm different from other girls
    have their men lusting wishing to rock my world
    i'm me longs as i bathes and not offend noone
    hell we live once who say it wrong to have some fun
    so what if i have a piercing in my lip
    have the whole community on a trip
    daddy a preacher, mamma godfearing how can she go out like that
    my outer pearance dont make my inner that makes me and thats a fact
    if we were all the same the world would be boring
    so don't worry if you get alot of stares
    just remember your true friend who cares
    i'm different and I [email protected] proud of it
    nice flow poetic

    Different, often seeing things from completely opposite ends of the spectrum, but still finding similarities therein...different. Loved the way you flowed with this, I feel so many can relate.
