Different - Poem by Kathryn Brookins
Getting all wrapped up in the times of today,
is not easy and my heart sits at bay.
People have changed, there values are not the same..
there morals have been displaced.. this is a shame.
I don't understand what is going on...
how so many things have gone backwards and wrong.
I watch it take place with hands that are tied..
listening to the words were that have been all lies.
To find realness, I can only depend on the earth...
the place I return to in death, and came from in birth.
Its the only real thing, I know I can trust...
People confuse love with lust...
disease is not even a factor in their brains...
I think most people have lost carring and gone insane.
Self respect does seem to exist in this day and age...
inside of me builds a uncontrolable rage.
I do not feel as though I belong here in this time...
I am lucky to have to my name... a dime.
I feel alone in these thoughts that I have inside..
I am just here, my time I abide.
I am not like these carefree souls...
I care deeply if it must be told.
I am emotional and alive within...
ridden with energy and thoughts, again and again...
I feel and think and care for others around me...
I was brought up that this was the way to be....
I feel alone in my ways that I live...
but I know that no matter, there is nothing I can not forgive....
I am not bread like a light switch that turns on and off...
But I can hide my tears and emotions, behind a fake cough..
I have learned how to walk it off..
and just stay alone.
