Silverstein always has been, and always will be my favorite poet because he doesn’t even need words in his poem to make people open their eyes.
This is a favorite of mine. I often get looked at weird for the way I feel about things. I super often get told that I’m just trying to be different or I’ve gone too far for attention or some shit, when in truth, I only act on the thoughts that come naturally. I personally am strong enough to ignore those people, but it hurts my heart for those who fear what their own mind conjures up.
