Am I Really - Poem by topaz africa

everywhere i go
people ask me the same thing
are you really
for a while i did'nt understand
but now i know
sometimes i find myself asking
am i reall
for a long time i did'nt want to be
i tried so much to change
i had to accept it
i am different from everybody else
really i am

    Indeed, everyone born under the sun is unique. I feel the world is peculiarly shunning and wishing this uniqueness. Your poem finely captures this experiential slice of life in simple words. (Report)Reply

    He who makes with the same clay but different faces? Yonela is a brave soldier of that same clay! (Report)Reply
