Individuality is Sometimes Really Hard to See


Most of my poems are from what can best be described as my "Blue Period", aka "The Dark Year of the Restless Soul".



Some days it gets

Real hard to see

So many folks say

"Act like me"

Or we will send you to

Some authority

Sounds to me

Like hypocrisy



Tries to be

Something that

They just can't see

So many people

Wanna be

Just like you

Or a bit like me

Looks to me

Like mediocrity


We're not alike

It's plain to see

Let's just let

Each other be

We've all got

Different fantasies

Let's live them out

In harmony

Great poem, very timely. If only we could reach that level of comfort to take off our masks and not try to live up to the standards of others and be accepted for our uniqueness. Thanks for sharing.
