2004 poems

The words I feel inside
Are the ones that I can't find.
People try and try and try
To tell me how I feel inside.
But they don't know it deep inside.
Relationships come and go.
But I still feel that nothing has healed my soul.
I wheel and deal but most of the time
People make me feel like I'm dirt.
I feel pain when they call me all these names.
By the way I think it's pretty lame.
Whoever calls me any names
I am going to take a picture of them
And put it in a frame.
Cause I don't play any games
When people call me those names.
When I feel it's too much for me to deal with
Other people saying those mean things to me.
