Everyone says we're so different; but are we really?

I'm the small one that throws the punches
You're the one with the huge mouth almost as wide as the ego

And yet, I watch you now, poorly trying to contemplate on why I stay away;

They're all saying I'm the bigger of the two;
But am I?


The author's comments:
I know someone whom I can't seem to get through to. I try to look through their eyes and see a new perspective. I think this person is somewhat messed up and in some ways, weirdly, I feel we share the same qualities

You know, it's kinda funny but it seems like all of the poems I write on the spur of the moment, the ones I'm not sure about, they are the ones that get the highest recognition. I have learned that it doesn't do much good to fear what other people are going to say and to let that hold you back because people, well, they will ALWAYS surprise you :) Happy writing!

Love,
