    Make believe your fantasy is real
    Fantasize that that’s how you truly feel
    Dream that you’re the center of attention
    When in reality you’re not even worth a mention
    You know you’re ostracized
    Because you see, there piercing eyes
    Your Simply Categorized
    Because you hear they’re hateful lies
    They’re wishing and waiting for you to die
    Holding you down so you’ll never rise
    Blasting your power igniting your pain
    Taking the sun and pouring the rain
    Over your head there opinions tower
    But over your life, why do they have
    Such Power

    Got to be strong to hold your head up in pride, when others want you to lower your head in shame. One against many is never easy. There was much pain expressed in this piece, well written scribe.

    They look, but don't see
    See without looking
    Glaring
    Staring
    In vain comparing
    Me
    To them
    On an insecure whim
    I care less
    Cause in fairness
    They're 20/20 blind
    To the man
    Beneath the shell
    That silently yells
    To the masses
    Kissing a**es
    To fit in the general public
    I've cut my strings
    Cause no longer shall I be a puppet!!!!!

    With that said :laugh:

    Very nice flow Just me!!!!!!!!!
    You brought the real
    And a poem out of a poet going through writer's block :kiss:

    Peace and love
