    People are never aware. They hardly take notice,or see me standing there.

    I don't mean it,if i do stare. I do care,but sometimes life is not fair.

    I try to make all the right choices,and to be with folks who are blessed with great voices.

    I stand before people and i choke. My voice stops and starts and croaks. Usually then i am ashamed to be near folks. It pains me and hurts that some consider this a joke.

    I am like the other lead character in Miami Vice,but if it is a speaking engagement. I must think twice and almost always deferred to my loving wife.

    It was hell! I like most stuttering people want to yell! "If you give me a chance you might think i'm swell." "Oh well!" They would have already have left and again i would have failed.

    People are going to see,what they want to see,and i'm okay with me.
    Stutter's have to believe,that they have the right to breathe.

    It can't be easy, having something to say, but saying it with difficulty. Everyone deserves to be at ease with themselves. Well posed piece.

    Well, I heard you loud and
    clear in this piece, Brother.
    There was no way around that.

    Your mind and voice, sung a melody
    so pure and true.
    I had no other choice,
    but to love you for being you!

    Hi robboy
    Life isn't fair that’s so true
    But we all have to embrace our imperfection
    And the strength that can help to make US whole
    Is the love from the ONE. That special ONE. And so it is okay
    how others feel, because you have the love of the ONE.
    And the love from the ONE is a world that none can penetrate.
    lol..I got so much from your poem, because I rolled in this circle once.
    "Love your imperfection" "Let your experinces in life be your resume to wisdom".
    much love

    Peace & Love
