People are different

Doreene Felder 1967 (Phila.)

People are different
Oh yes they are
Can't figure them out
Rather near or far
People are different
No matter what you may say
It's like threading a needle
Or not knowing what to say
It's like a needle in the hay stack
Trying to move back
It's like seeing molasses
Moving real fast
It's like seeing eye to eye
Not really for real
It's like mumble jumble
Trying to be humble
It's like looking outside on a rainy day
It's like stars in the sky
 That cannot be reached.
It's like the only answer
You must teach .
It's like touching something
You shouldn't have touched
It's like calling God
Whose already watching
Seeing your every move
No matter what you are doing
It's like water in the sand
Taking its own stand.
