My name is nothing,
My face is less.

The place that I come
from
Is one that is blessed.

I am of no shape,
And less of hate,
For I am what I am
this I will state.

I am like you,
With love and Pain.

And though I am different,
I am still the same.

I feel with my heart ,
And speak with my voice.

You can love me or hate me ,
For this is your choice...

well done!
Its weird, isn't it, how we're all so much alike but yet so many people choose to favor.. or to hate.. certain people.
What a weird world we live in.

Always, Alyssa

Very insightful piece. To think in that way and then imagine your feelings in relation to other people requires a kind of innocence that is missing in many humans today.

That perspective came to me as I recalled a statement made by C.Day Lewis in a piece titled 'The Nurture of the Imagination'(1936): "The poet, then, must feel in images; must grasp the connection between things -but grasp them emotionally rather than logically, and must be capable of seeing one thing in terms of another. Now, if we consider those three abilities, we realise there is a certain innocence, a child-like nature common to all of them. Imagination demands -and not only from the poet- a quality of innocence."

I enjoyed and appreciated this poem.
