Note: The following is one of several poems I found on a website geared to gay and lesbian youth that I liked very much way back in 1996. As I have started rebuilding the blog, I want to include these poems. I tried unsuccessfully to contact the poets for their permission. If this is your poem, I would love to hear from you.
sometimes by Earl age 16

i understand sometimes but,
why when i don't everyone else does?

my friends sometimes tell me,
i'm blind to what people do to me, sometimes.

but there was one time,
i can remember that someone made me feel loved.

this is a sometime that i'll never forget
i sometimes wish this time was all the time.

this may have only happened one time,
but at least it happened sometime.
