I memorized this poem when I was about 12 or so.
Since I was a bit odd, not out-casted but not "normal"...
I memorized this,
so that whenever
I felt bad about being different I could just say this in my head and feel better.
And it still works.
I find it hard to understand others as they come and go
The things they do
the things they say
are things I just don't know.
So I think I'll try to fool them
and do things differently
by trying just to understand myself
and let them understand me
I do try to understand others now, but only by understanding myself first.
Hope you like it:)
