Author: Ben Franklin


someone told me the other day
''me and you both know that
im ugly,

When i walk down the corridor people look at me
i dont like this world,
all your intrested in is money money money!

I live in VA,
but my poetry sends me miles and miles
it takes me back to my childhood,
it takes me to a different planet where i ride shooting stars,
it gives me wisdom,
its the only thing that gives me love and doesnt call
me ugly,

i wish the world was like my poetry,then no one would
judge me''.

This poem is dedicated to somone on this site that i have struck up a friendship with,has helped me push on and keep going.

Awww, Hushy

Thank you so much! I'm almost bawling up here..... You didn't have to dedicate this to me!! I love it though! I guess I have to realize I'm not, and accept who I am, inspite of the teasing.... I thank you 1,000,000,000,000 times Ben for being so supportive! We've helped each other out in friendship and poetry! I love it!
You definitely made me show all thirty-twos, I'm grateful, thankful, and I appreciate it very much!!
