Stranger MAG

By Unknown, Unknown, Unknown

   The stranger lurks about each day

And no one knows his name.

His clothes are dark; his hat down low

Each day he looks the same.

The people talk and gossip

Of the harm that he might do.

Perhaps he's only searching

For a friend to find anew.

We judge too quickly throughout life

Labelling people at a glance.

Maybe we would be happier

Giving a stranger a second chance.

I love this poem. You gave me inspiration on the last poem I wrote. Recently there's been a project to do in my english class and we had to write many different poems. The one you effected me on was the family member poem. I saw how easily this one flowed and I loved the rhyme scheme you used. You did an excellent job of sending a message to the reader. The message was true as well. People have become so judgemental these days, we just need to give people a chance to prove that there's more to them than just what meets the eye. Your poem brightened my day! Please write more :]
