I Thank Those Of You

August 7, 2012




I thank those of you
Who treated me
In my ‘Blond’ time
With respect and dignity.

And for those
Who laughed
And ridiculed
I thank you too.

For you have let me see
There are beautiful people
In this world
And ones filled
With misery.

You have a place
Here in this world
But it is nowhere
Near or part of me.

  1. Poignantly written. 🙂 We’ve all had our blond moments; we all learn from them, and we become stronger from the people around us. I enjoyed reading this.
