Dear all who care,
This poem is about the courage to come out of the closet. Life is rough on
those of us who chose to be homosexual and i wanted to help all of you out
that are as well.

PS: i was blazed as shit when i wrote this

The woman was a literary genius.I think alot of the credit goes to the
valiums though because of my research as a pharmisist and a fellow
tranqulizer abuser i can conclude that alot of her poetry came from being
under the influnce. I also consider myself a literary genius because when
other people think they see things in a poem in reality they dont they are
just high

I find it humorous how several comments listed display incorrect grammar..
We are critiquing literature, correct?

i love this poem so much!! it is a very sad poem that talks about life and
all the things you go through. it's sad how in the last stanza she talks
about death sneaking up on you and then, because you are ready, you put on
your slippers and walk out. i love how this poem was written.

I enjoy this poem...What could it be saying everyone has many opions about
it but most of all its outstanding how courage was broken down.....We as
people never have courage to face the worst fear that Really scares them
maybe the author's fear was death and she wanted the courage to overcome
