My Life


Sitting alone here
I watch other people
And I watch my cup

Slowly its contents will disappear
Creating something new
An empty cup

But soon someone comes along
Refilling and replenishing what was once there
Now it is new
But someday, that too will disappear

I wait the day when I find the perfect cup
A cup that will never be empty
It will replenish itself
And now matter how much is taken
It will forever be full


Im comfortable in my skin
Im comfortable with who I am
Im comfortable for al that I stand for
So why cant you accept this?

You seem afraid that Im contagious
That if I should touch you, youll catch it
Like its some kind of dreaded disease
But its not

What I have is not a disease
But it is contagious
Because what I have is love
Love for all that is different

Maybe that wouldnt be so bad to catch
Youd learn love, just like I have
Youd learn respect, and how to care
Youd learn to love everyone

So love all who are different
Cherish those who make you think
Appreciate all who challenge you
And kill the rest with kindness.
