I want you to...

I want you to...

A Poem by Gavin Keary

I want you to see

who I am,

not what I am.

I want to turn myself

inside out

so you can see me as I am

on the inside.

I want you to love me

for my laughs,

my cries,

my fears,

for everything

that makes me.

This poem will appeal to almost all human beings. I think that's what all of us want, to be loved and accepted for who we are, not who someone perceives us to be. Accept us, warts and all. A sensitve poem.

This is good. I like the simple yet deep meaning. I love the structure. This poem says a lot about how people want those close to them to see who they are. Very nicely written.

Some of my major inspiration would have to be my life in general, other people's lives (I am fascinated by other people's lives). Authors that I look up to would be Tolkien, Poe, Spider Robinson,.. more..
