I Want To Feel Alive!


i dont want to be around people just like me,
that agree with me, look like me, smell like me,
and believe what i believe....
that make me feel safe.

i want to be around people,
with different color, different thoughts,
different beliefs....
people that question,
and make me question!

i want to be around passionate people,
people who dream, people who dance,
people who run naked in the night,
people who cry and feel,
who touch and hold...
people who let go!

i dont want to feel safe,
i want to feel alive!

    Got to be with you on this one, when I met my partner we had nothing at all in common,
    and we still don't, and we love it. We've been together years and we still never agree
    with each other, but it works. a great poem. (Report) Reply
