Frida Kahlo — I'm Just as Strange as You

Frida Kahlo leaves this strange world on July 13, 1954.

I used to think
I was the strangest person in the world
but then I thought
There are so many people in the world,
there must be someone just like me
who feels bizarre and flawed
in the same ways I do.
I would imagine her,
and imagine that she must be out there
thinking of me too.
Well, I hope that if you are out there and read this
and know that, yes, it's true I'm here,
and I'm just as strange as you.



— Frida Kahlo
