*** Just a few notes for anyone who doesn't understand some of this. A greebo is a girl who listens to rock music and dresses in baggy jeans and tight tops. All makeup and accesories are very bright and childish!****

You never really knew me
you didn't give a stuff
you just wanted me on your side
to make you seem more tough

I was always different
a hippy/goth/greebo
but all you'd do was tease me
sometimes I didn't even know

I sometimes want to kill you
the rest I love you to death
but none of you really care for me
cus I was different from the rest

One day tenderness will rule the world
and then you all will see
how we all are different
and how you patronised me

Just becuase I love to smile
and listen to rock and roll
I was a halfbreed hippy-greebo
This whole world is a mixing bowl!

One day tenderness will rule the world
and then you all will wish
how you hadn't patronised me
in the worlds great serving dish

This is a wonderful poem. I hate when people try to categorize each other... good work on the poem.

I really love this! I love what you've written, and how you think of yourself. This is excellent. I think you've inspired me to write another one of these as well... It's hard to 'get to know' a person with only one poem... Back to the notebook for me.


 "We prefer to do things comfortably" said the Controller.
"But I don't want comfort. I want God, I want poetry, I want real danger, I want freedom, I want goodness. I want sin."
"In fact," said Mustapha Mond, "you're claiming the right to be unhappy."
"Alright then," said the Savage defiantly, "I'm claiming the right to be unhappy." -Aldous Huxley "Brave New World"

This was a great poem. I really liked the line "This whole world is a mixing bowl!" <it's so true
Keep up the good word!!!
