For I am not like any other

Mon, 08/12/2013 - 10:17 -- JCuyler

As I am

Not like many others who do not stray

I am but one of whom you can't clone

Whose emotional tune does not play


Triggering the thought of loneliness at will

Sacrificing myself at every turn

So I stay still

Hoping everyones contepmt does not burn


Wandering away from the crowed

Not caring if you all sneer

Hearing your angry voices loud

Letting my loneliness appear


But  I am not like any other

So I shall stand here alone and let darkness hover.

Guide that inspired this poem: 



This is a strong piece of presence and will, of knowing who you are and how strong you are. Reading it made me feel strong and almost away from the rest of the world, I'm not sure if it made me feel happy or sad, and I'm curious now as to what emotion you had when writing it, and maybe even now as you reread it. There are a few mistakes that can be fixed with a scan through once more, but otherwise it was a great piece. Thank you so much for sharing this.



Very powerful so much meaning and incredible emotion
