This poem is slightly different than the others - no, I'm not referring ot the lack of rhymes people usually define "poem" with. It defines not a lost love nor a need for a new one, but the issues the author has (let's face it, everyone has) with common society. People often judge you no matter what you do or who you are and you cannot get away from this behaviour.

The contrast here is indeed, fellow readers, hard to grasp at first. It is not because of bad portrayal or lack of technique but the sheer rarity of this particular technique.

I know usually you're supposed to show a negative point, but personally I can't think of any off the top of my head. I was truly blown away!

I have to say, this was extremely true, and brilliantly written!
The poem relates to many people, and is very serious. It isn't the MOST original poem, and there are several like it, but the wonderful thing is, they are constantly written because they are beautiful! Though, it has it's own special essence that gives it it's originality. My only complaint would be that, it doesn't have a REAL ending to tie it up. if it didn't just stop supplying words, it would be able to continue as it is. I believe it should have one last phrase, or word to indicate it has ended. Besides that, I thought this poem was very inspirational.

Certainly speaks out against stereotypes. You did a good job writing this.
but yeah people are judgemental
Is this how you look at everything? Or is this just to say people are wrong sometimes?

The truth and very well written good job :)
The people are like the Sith Lords. They only consider extremes.
And they can think what they want about me. I'll just say "meh" and walk away.
