For You...

HI! MY NAME IS ARCHIE. I LIKE POSTING STORIES OF MYSELF ON HERE, GETTING IT OUT, SHARING IT OTHERS, WHO CAN RELATE. SOMETIMES I SHARE THINGS I HAVE NOT WRITTEN, BUT FEEL IT'S WORTH SHARING. THIS IS ONE OF THOSE TIMES. WHAT I'M ABOUT TO SHARE WITH YOU, I DID NOT WRITE. THOUGH THE PERSON'S NAME IS ON WHAT I'M ABOUT TO SHARE, I WILL NOT PUT THEIR NAME ON HERE.
I GOT THE POEM I'M ABOUT TO SHARE FROM A PATHLET THE TEACHER HANDED OUT WHEN I WAS IN 7th GRADE. I GRADUATED IN '86, SO I'VE HAD THIS FOR A WHILE. I CAN DEFFINATELY RELATE TO THE PERSON WHO WROTE THIS, WHO LIVED IN NEW JERSEY AT THE TIME IT WAS WRITTEN. I'M SURE MANY WHO READ IT WILL BE ABLE TO RELATE AS WELL....


FOR YOU

FOR YOU I TRIED TO BE DIFFERENT.
FOR YOU I TRIED TO CHANGE.
FOR YOU I TURNED MYSELF INTO
SOMEOE NEW AND STRANGE.
I KNOW NOW THAT IT WAS SILLY
TO PUT ON A MASK THAT WAY.
BUT NOW IT'S MUCH TOO LATE, YOU SEE,
FOR YOU HAVE FLOWN AWAY.


I THINK IT SAYS IT ALL.
