Normal,You're normal,You're just like all the restA number stamped across the pageA statistic on a testThe SAT's just like a treeThey said climb and do your bestBut little did those people know
for You and I where there is no Lies Love is different. Not so for One but in Pairs like a union is for Two But shared for You and I. Like forgiveness is not easy at all. Love gives powers to us all.
    Each and every question, by you or I, to me My mind is quick to answer, so sure I’ll feel it be An evolution strikes, as dusk turns into dawn Awakened with wide eyes, my decision’s fully wrong
The lone wolf was cut out from the pack With nothing but a hurtful smack. What did she do? She wasnt like you. She hunts at night, With the moon as her light. She is alone, But not forlorn.
People ask, and say, and do But who may I, ask are you? I am a girl, who thought she was smart But was duller than a broken dart. I am emotionless they say Night by night, and day by day.
  The first time I laid eyes on you I knew we were bound to be together   You're so different from the rest I feel like you express who I am   I'm so very fortunate to have you
"Be perfect and proper!" "Be quiet and calm!" "Always stay in order!" -That's the idea put in my palm. "Why are you so loud?" "Be more like the crew!" -Forcing me to not be proud
Three out of four was the turn out. Growing up in a single parent household, College Park, Ga 30349 was my hood until my mother found a way out. Moved us quite a few times, then we hit Henry County.
Lonely but Glad Happy but sad Alone but surrounded Singing but silent Alive but dead Smooth but with a dent Silent but screaming Loud but quiet Crushed but dreaming I stood but He left 
Back and forth I go, Swinging to and fro, As the world spins below, For a reason I do not know. Pumping my legs and gaining height. Thinking that the spinning would stop and hoping that it might.
We wear the mask that hides who we are  It hides our highs and our lows This debt we pay to society With physical apperance  Picture perfect   Why should the world judge us?
Sorrow, Emotions that travel through each human being as we face triumph and hardships in our lives, a world full of confusion as every young professional tries to thrive.
To love a girl as different as me would go against society. Extremely loud and incredibly independent goes against society's judgement Skipping church to find life's meaning leaves the cruel society steaming
Out of the frying pan Into the fire Just your fellow man Mislead by desire I can do it, I know I can Liar liar pants on fire
(poems go here)
Paper holds no prejudice, unlike an opionionated conversation,  paper can make readers colorblind, it can recieve little abdication.   Writing can make a poor man esteemed,
No matter how big, No matter how small, I will make a difference, That will touch the hearts of all. No such boundaries, Can tear me down Because I am me And I don’t frown.
When he was born, he was special. He learned things a different way. He seen the world through unique eyes. He spoke in the way he thought others spoke. Some seen him as stupid, but I seen him as unique.
I cant stand missionaries No let me rephrase that I cant stand the idea of it Cultural oppression at its finest The idea that you are right And therefore everything else is wrong
2 cannot fuse together unless they agree, A Jar full of grace mixed with iniquity, Like oil and water, those two can never be stirred, One is a dream, the other makes it deferred,
Tell them it’s not me. Tell them it’s not me anymore. Tell them I’m not quiet, That I’m not shy, That I’m the one they should adore. Tell them they don’t know.
Once upon a time, I tried to be like you.  I tried to act and look the same, and like the same things too.   I used to be your shadow, but now I've got my own. I am done being a copycat; today, I stand alone.
My world is damaged, my world it bleeds, It’s been infected, corrupted, and battered to a “tee”. It cries, it begs, it screams out of pain, And unless something changes, it will die in vain.
If you were here It would all be different The way the leaves fall off the trees They could glide the way lips graze over teeth in smiles
I just want to be one. One of many, one of the same, one of everything. To not be shunned out like the rest but to be my self as well. Which is it, which is it would I chose given the choice.
The media controls how beauty is defined, He may be a follower, or he may be left behind. I give you the test, the one that tells in time, How you may be judged, or aren't right in the mind.
Just a boy who died No relation to me or those in my class People never knew him, But I suddenly remembered.
Please excuse my hard exterior For I see you have to chisel slow In order to force through me To form the creation in your mind That you see
Since we were learning how to talk, we were taught what is and isn't appropriate, have to follow a template to do anything, and even demanded to change what we wrote in it,
What is an 'if' What is a 'what' The same as an 'as' Yet different than an 'an'
You would never think of stars Those tiny, inconsequential lights in the night sky You would never believe our sun Is exactly like those white lights Its golden rays shining on your face
From the birth One was looked at as unusual weird, not normal But why the eye deceives one to judge Not of what you know but of what you see Its hard when your trying to be Not like he or she But to be you
Although I always seem super happy when I’m at my school Just to play friendship with all those stupid fools What goes in my mind should never be tell Or else I’ll set my seal and go straight to hell
I just want to change someones state of mind. Everyday brings me one step closer to being outta time. I'm sick and tired of everyone acting like this is such a crime. Maybe if you weren't your own enemy and had a open mind,
The room was light Misty and still As if to foreshadow the sunrise I reached the dining table To find it adorned By a half empty jar with roses Of five, six, or seven The number escapes All I remember is the moment I laid eyes on the most beautifu
There is little that makes sense in this world, But justice is something I understand. The equality of all men, And the celebration of each other.
Who I am It’s hard to describe But something lies in between both eyes A vision to be greater More than me Bigger than the bigger picture More than free Who I am I may never decide
