Uh.. I wasn't sure if my browser had uploaded the poem correctly. But after
a few 'Refresh'-es.. Its a really refreshing poem. It seems really direct
with the simple words used, but in my perspective there are so many
meanings. Amazing how so much can be interpreted from so little.

I believe that it's a powerful poem even though I'm a Brit.... It tells me
that everone should shine and be their own colours!!! I'll be back later, I
need to use the Lou!

He's absolutely right! The next time I want to talk to someone I don't know
but be afraid, I will remember this poem and just do it!!

this poem show us how lonely we are and how hard is to break comunication's
just because we had received restricts instructions obout the strangers
since we were kids...we could start to change it? In the name of love...

Really, how do you get out homosexuality from all of, what, three lines?
This poem is basically urging us to break free of our personal restrictions
and do things we may not normally do, like talk to strangers.
