Set Me Apart - Poem by Sandra Osborne

Sharing vices
With friends I love,
Sets me apart,
From the multitudes,
Who fear the use of Freedom,

A hollow haven.
Broad bleak avenues,
Shinning cars,
Glitter and lace,
Neon and McDonalds.

I have traveled far,
From home,
In these journeys,
And yet always,
I am home.

Sharing love
With friends I love,
Sets me apart
from the mundane gray;
And sparks fire
Inside my soul.

    I think this ought to be expanded, it stops abruptly leaving the reader wondering what happened.
    Good though
