Away, away, sailing away,
alone on a wide wide sea;
Drifting, floating on a white cloud plain--
not a thing in sight but me
A mindless breeze, a silent whoosh,
propels the ship ahead,
in the distance, a faint line forms,
a line up of the dead.
Where are you going? I question,
Why am I left behind?
Do not worry, your time will come,
came the disembodied reply.

Hate me because I don't agree.
Hate me because I read all the time.
Hate me because my writing is beautiful.
Hate me because I have cold, etched eyes.
Hate me because I'm not shallow.
Hate me because I think before I speak.
Hate me because I use wit.
Hate me for being a freak.
I don't care.
I'm going to be someone someday.
And that's more than I can say for you.
CareThrow away my identityCare3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Take away my pride
Shake away my liberty
And I just go and hide
Hold me up or tear me down
It does not matter which
You will never see me frown
I am stronger than this
You were stronger than I
And I never will forget
The time you almost died
It is something I regret
You'd lay down your life for me
I wish I'd do the same
But now it is this reality
That always will remain
