It's Funny

Updated on March 28, 2012

You are someone's Angel
You are another Man's beast
You are a reason for someone to hope
You are another Man's reason to grieve

You could be my best friend
And just another bully to someone else
You are the perfect example today
Tomorrow you are just another fellow

Your mentor
Can be just another Man's poison
Your favorite meal
Can be just another Man's crap

What you desire
Can be just another Man's nonsense
Your dreams
Is but another Man's night mare

Your master piece
Could be just another lame writing
The song that makes your heart beat
Is just another song that makes another Man's heart bleeds

You are neither a priest or judge
What you think is just an opinion
Your aim is another Man's tail
Your starting page
Could be another Man's fame

Your story could be just another tale
Your challenge another Man's joke
Your joke and another Man's pain
Your pain another Man's man gain
Your gain another Man's cage
Your cage another Man's adventure
Your adventure another Man's trap
Your trap another Man's puzzle
Your puzzle another Man's vision
Your vision another Man's misery
Your Misery another Man's TV

It's funny
Our goal can be just another road
How much it means to us
And some don't even care
How much we strive and some just sit and relax
How much we believe and others laugh

It's funny
The same goals but different rows...
The same mission but different paths..

      This poem highlights the difference that exists that makes one man's reality another's unreality. A very creative and beautifully crafted reminder that our truth, that we hold so close and dearly, is not necessarily another's truth. A very good reason to keep an open mind. I like this heaps, thank you Capedium, my votes to you.

      Reminds us how different we really are, unique individuals walking on different paths. Thank you!

      The last part says it all. How much a goal means to us and some don't even care. I've learned throughout life that we cannot change the way people think or believe. We all look at things in our own unique way. Something I may see as black could be white to the person standing next to me. Very well written, profound and thought provoking. Blessings, Sparklea :)

      This is a perfect example of hopes and dreams, all different, all important, all traveling down roads that lead to different places at different times. Difference can be beautiful..Cheers My Friend

      Hi Capedium

      This is brilliant. We all want different things from life. What is important to you may not be important to others. We all have our own path to follow.

      Voted up and away!
