Differences

Reach out
Hold a hand
Together we
Could
meander

Seeking
The
different
More than
The
Familiar

Birds on the wire
high or low
Up or down

Colourful
Or
Quiet

Dreaming
Or singing

Talking
Or tranced

Different
To some

Just who we
Are
To us

Boredom
Defeated by
The
Spectrum
Of gifts

Take your
Ticket
Find you
Space

Never in line
Up or down

Left or right

Disco dance
In our
Unique
Design

I saw a cartoon character and i recognised inside the colours resonating a little bit differently which touched my mind with a different shade of words or thoughts or dreams. And felt grateful for those who also recognise the wonderful world we could have if the differences were loved more than the similarities.

Your door

It died

The weed

Beneath

My shoe

It pierced

the hole

The rain

Bore

Through

Before

I choose

The door

To lie

My hunger

Feed

my mind

To cry

Remembering

The days

I forget

Before the

Street

Became

My home.

Where

Your door

Closes

My room

Lies

Bare

Waiting

The tears

Never

Cried

For

Another

Homeless

Dad

Who

Died
