Beneath The Surface
17 March, 2006
author: Rebecca Ditch-Hammack (aka Dreamer)


Silence me
Make me conform
To something I am not
Nor will I ever be

Fear me
For I am different
But I am of no danger
I hurt no one

Ignore me
I will go away
As others have before me
History repeats

Forget me
I am really no one
I am no different than you
It's only an illusion

Bury me
Beneath prejudice
Hide me in your ignorance
I am forever

So impressed

I'm learning that a few mini paragraphs can speak more than two pages worth of poems....depending on how powerful the statement conveyed, like this poem here! This is poem is so good! Grand poem Dreamer, just grand!

Thanks all, Yes Meridian, alot can be said with well chosen words put together in "stanzas". That is the fun of poetry. Playing with the words to make them say what you want. I like playing with poems within poems. Did you find any?

Hey Dreamer! No, I haven't found them yet. I'm still searching. However, when the time comes, you'll be seeing a submitted poem coming from me regarding that...:)
