"I am hearing poetry when awake, dreaming poetry when asleep, breathing poetry with each breath, I am living in a poem."

In A Sea Of Identical

There was a time when
I attempted to stuff
All that made me different
Inside a trunk in my soul

I wanted to escape into average
So I would not be noticed
One in a sea of identical

But once named an oddity
I could not escape it
Whispers followed me
On gossip’s wings

Lie’s arrows hit me
With wounds deep
Average was filled with
Vicious packs of peers
With an agenda
Of seek and destroy

Left to die on the battlefield
I could not stop the words
That were thrown at me
But I could stop trying
To become someone
I was never meant to be
