"I need you to try. Look around. Everyone is broken. If you continue to wear the label, that's all you'll ever be."

Smile at Me,
I beg you of you,
You Smile at him,
And Her, too,
But not at me,
Do I have some unknown disease?

Do I disgust you?
Does the sight of me
Make you queasy?
Do you avoid my glance?
Pretending to be unaware
Of my stare?
As I search your eyes
For that look of remembrance

I cannot stand it any longer
What must I do to get you
To acknowledge me
My being,
My existence

Here I stand
Here I say
One Last Time
As you look away

Smile at me
For only a moment
So I may be on my way
So your smile can stay
With me as I leave today

The author's comments:
This poem is my acknowledging a life that longs to be recorded, to be acknowledged, to be recognized, even in the slightest of ways.
