National Poetry Writing Month is nearly at end. To celebrate it, try your hand at some verse.

Standing outside

Myself wanting

To fit in but

Every spot I

Try holds me

In fear creating

A backing a way

Back to the corner

I see labeled for me

I want more

I want what they have

But what is it that

Draws me to them

That I am lacking

Oh, you say

To only smile

And say a kind word

And people will

Come to me

And want to

Fit into my space

To know who I am

I will try as I

Have not succeeded

Being in their shoes

I will try to

Just to be myself………

Terry Shepherd
