Who are you?

There are two different types of people.

Those who are, and those who are not.

If you are kind

If you act without affecting others.

If you are patient.

Then you are in this world.

If you act that you are.

If you act to raise your image.

If you fight for what’s right.

You are not in this world.

Those who are, are not better.

Those who are not, are not "good".

We are all humans after all.

Some of us exist, others do not.

Those who help care.

Those who fight loose.

It matters why you do.


Who are you?

"any tips would be appreciated."

It is my experience that when my poetry speaks as authority, it turns people off.  "You should" or "you must" or "there are" are terms I avoid.  I simply try to describe one person whether they are real or fictional or I share my experience.  In this way people are free to say: "I can relate to that."  ---   Stephen
