I wish to be other …
other than myself
to embrace otherness

I see those others
striding through life
extrovert, popular

why is their confidence
so other to mine
theirs strong and solid
mine fragile and delicate

how does it feel to wake
in the morning and know
what they know
these others
they’re attractive
their opinions are valid
they are lovable
fun, interesting
worth something

how does it feel
to just live and not think
to make stupid choices
and not care
and not ponder, relive
go over and over
analysing actions long gone

do they worry
these others
about things that might happen
about things that could be
do they feel sick with panic
with ridiculous fears

but if I was an other
then who would I be
and would you love an other
or is it just me
that you love

  1. Where as I realize that I am still an outsider
    Despite my attempts to be more social
    maybe this i not an error in my ways but proof
    that despite my openness I am still myself

    Remind yourself of this… if you would be too certain of yourself you would firstly be a douche and secondly what motivation to write awesome poetry would you have.

    Think, re-evaluate but don’t ever believe that the others certainty is something that comes easily to them. Most people don’t notice the mask of sureness they wear.
