This poem is a great inspiration to anyone suffering the curse of
addiction. The way I read this poem concerns the struggle to better
ourselves. Only by finding the courage and strength to be your true honest
self (a total stranger to your current unhappy being) will you free
yourself from a living hell.

A total stranger one black day
a very good, and well thought out poem about the dark side of people.
Regardless on our particular feelings to this side we must learn to accept
it and come into terms with it. Because it is and will always be a part of

i think you must accept how you are, and never try to put a different face,
i like this poem very much, because i have realise that you are only who
you are, and nothing more.

I think this poem is about realizing that maybe we can't always be who we
want, and sometimes we end up beating ourselves up over it, but in the end
we learn to deal with it.

You must accept who you are and never put yourself down. There is none in
truth, even yourself, that should "beat" you, ever.
