0113 Different Am I [01 November 1997]

Different,
Am I.
Lost,
Was I.

Now,
Do I see.
Why
Must you not?

What,
Does the future
Hold for me
And my gifts.

Do I spend them
Like money,
Only
To get more?

Do I let them lay dormant,
Or let them die?
Do I lie dormant,
Or do I die?

Someone
Once said to me,
She,
Can only mean nothing.

Why,
Am I judged so?
Do I not
Have a mind of mine own?

As your death
Grows nearer to life,
Do you forget life
And despair of death.

I am human,
As all can see.
I am different,
Is that all you see?

Truth
Brings to all
The will to live
And dreams lived.

I lost my way
Through a forest of doubts.
Soon though,
I found my way.

I know my destiny
And all I can be
Is what is planned
For me.

Try to understand,
But I know you cannot.
For you cannot comprehend
The dreams of a young woman.
