To Understand

Poem By Da'Vetta Hayes

Understanding me takes time to figure out how I work

Write me off as crazy or mental but I work differently

While you dream of ponies at 6 I dream of amoeba cells

When you and your family go skate we order in and call it a day

While you may not know me at all I dont know myself that well

When you judge me I feel like you dont try to know me at all

But I don't blame you for running away from me because I am not normal

But what is 'NORMAL'? Is it an actual title everyone can use to agree

Or, is it one's own perception of the true meaning of life?

Happiness, one's own percetion, right, it is what they want it to be

But understanding is also one's own percetion because only you will know when you truly Understand Me.....

What Do I Do

What do I do when the love I feel is far away but my marriage is so near?
What do I do when my heart aches for me to back down out of constant fear?
What do I do when I have to leave the only home I know?
What do I do when I try to be calm and not let my anger show?

Beauty In The Dictionary

I am a ball of words waiting to be explored, every word differently expressed to create a mood in which gives me life.

Each word as unique as me. Giving me the ability to seek true meaning of myself.

They And I

I am 17 and counting..
They tell me poetry is for developed feelings
I tell them it is for the ones who feel
They tell me it is not for a child


My eyes are crimson and my speech is perfect
I am a beauty divine

I thirst for the lonesome truth in the dark

In The Long Run

Alone and lost without a passion of regret
through a dusty window do I cry

Injured for the delight of others through
