Reviews for I Won't Die Like You
glimpses from an ivory tower chapter 1 . 9/3/2007
"This is me saying 'Fuck You'.

This is me, in fabric-skin clothes-

adorned in unlike-you garments screaming who I am.

This is me speaking, moving,

being.

Not how you like- not like your dictionary 'boy'

Not like you.

No, I'm not like you, and I will die this way.

Unordinary. Extraordinary.

And for this I sing."

Wow. Resounding, defiant, beautiful. The refrain has been echoing in my head all day. The quests to discover one's identity amidst a generation of conformity and preserve one's individuality against the stereotyped norm are ones rarely written about so well.

Your words are a gift, truly. Thank you for writing this.

This is most deffinately interesting. I hope you keep writing, you seem to have so much to say. I love your bold approach and cynical outlook on perfection. Good job lovely.

this was one of the most true pieces of literature i've ever read. pieces like this have helped me through difficult times in my sexuality. others are not always understanding, guys are the most brutal, i think you are a brave soul amongst cowardly plebeians

though touching the poem was somewhat unclear is that how you currently feel do you know and embrace you sexuality or mask it

you are truly talented

and if you continue to hone this skill i think it will take you far

With love
