Who Understands Me But Me Comments

Rating: 4.6
They turn the water off, so I live without water,
they build walls higher, so I live without treetops,
they paint the windows black, so I live without sunshine,
they lock my cage, so I live without going anywhere,

I am stubborn and childish, in the midst of this wreckage of life they incurred, I practice being myself, .............../// introspective

I practice being myself, and I have found parts of myself never dreamed of by me, they were goaded out from under rocks in my heart when the walls were built higher, when the water was turned off and the windows painted black. I followed these signs written greatly this poem great 10+++++++++++++++++++

Let there not be such miserable situations to human beings where their freedom is curtailed, walls are painted in black and dark and water supply is cut off and alienated from the mainstream of human life which is against natural freedom and love of life itself. A poem with a difference but however relevant to make such precautions to maintain the freedom and justice to man.

Maybe not so well written or stuff, but I still loved the message he tries to pass on. Loved it.

. If each man of this world could only once deepen into self to find out that true happiness is not in what we have or touch, the human kind would quit doing such harm we do today to our mother land. A poem to teach the essence of our lives. I am very grateful for reading it, thank you!

The person we least learn about living with. Love the contrast of negativity and positive attitudes.

Amazing poem...i think it's really true...we find ourselves when no body is ready to look out for us...and in that we find great comfort and we can understand the beauty of our lives even in the darkest of times! ! Wonderfully expressed poem Luv VidZ
