TO UNDERSTAND ME


To understand me
Is to talk to me
And also to let me be me
And not put me down
And not judge me
And not laugh at me
And not put words into my mouth
And not control me
Yes there might be things that you dont agree
How I dress myself
How I communicate
What I am talking about
My opinions about things
The songs I like
The foods I like
The way I live my life
The friends I have

Poem of the Day

poet James Whitcomb Riley

There! little girl; don't cry!
They have broken your doll, I know;
And your tea-set blue,
And your play-house, too,
Are things of the long ago;
