0113 Different Am I [01 November 1997]

Am I.
Was I.

Do I see.
Must you not?

Does the future
Hold for me
And my gifts.

Do I spend them
Like money,
To get more?

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

Once said to me,
Can only mean nothing.

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?

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.
