Be Nobody's Darling

Rating: 3.0
Be nobody's darling;
Be an outcast.
Take the contradictions
Of your life
And wrap around
You like a shawl,
To parry stones
To keep you warm.
Watch the people succumb
To madness
With ample cheer;

I like her crusading spirit and her equally novel writing style. I do not totally agree with her here if she means to put one's self above all else. I do agree if she means to reach your own conclusions both before and after reading and listening to the views of others. I am, however, a fan of her poetry!

As a self proclaimed self confessed self motivated outcast, contradictions in stones have bounced off my head lined rivers and filled oceans of tears shed in joy and pain, the lone wolf howling in the wilderness knows its place and purpose, we honour tides and rivers of the moon.

Not impressive for me, but I know little about her other work.

A very deep and moving write. Don't succumb to everything that comes your way. Be yourself. Good.

a wonderful assertion of the self, madam. Loved reading it. A self pat is one of my poems with a similar feel.
