I'm like those who judge me.
I laugh when I hear a joke I like
I cry when I lose someone I love
I want to be surrounded by friends, not empty spaces
I hide myself inside a marble shell
I don't trust those who are kind to me
To be myself is not in my agenda
Instead I fight to stay hidden
Behind crumbling walls
Of marble, granite, and pieces of my heart
Am I human?
Why, yes I am.
I fret for today and hope for tomorrow.
I make mistakes that haunt me.
I make friends
I lose them.
I shoot for the stars
But I land back on the ground.
I dream of the future and repress the past
I'm like those who judge me.
They look at me
Porcelain people staring at a body of clay
But do they not see that we both bleed red
We dream in pleasant places
And sometimes in dark valleys
I'm like those who judge me.

we're all equal, but some people a loss of brain. i can sense how you feel and i can't comment and tell you how that is, but some things are left better w/o words to destroy the silence. good job though. i liked it :)

I love this poem. It is so, so true. I feel what you're saying here.
