Take Pride In Being Different

Updated on July 25, 2013

A One Of A Kind

You will meet with great opposition in life

Because so many things are alike

We get married to be together

So Married couples are pairs of two

We look around and see groups of teachers who teach the same way

The follow an organized system of scores and policies

To lead the young to a better life

There are parents across the country who protect their children

From any harm that they may see

Unions who fight for rights to protect workers from state to state

Various clubs and organizations that exsist to help their members that offer special rights

As one person you have little power against the masses

Always remember it is a person who has a special gift

A talent like no other that is sought after

The athletes and the movie stars

We call them Superstars

That very few can be

They have unique abilities that rise above the common person

The richest people in the world claim their right to fame

I say it is you who will change the world

With your new ideas and dreams

One that will take our current problems and make them disappear

Through hard work and finding a solution

That many people could not find

For one simple reason

They could not think outside the box

They followed what they were taught

To conform to the rules and the guidelines

Leave the bigger problems to the system

Made up of politcians and south sayers

Who claim they know

When in reality we as individuals

Lead the way

Living our lives dedicated to helping others

Not for monetary means

Guided by our creativity and imagination

We will always find a way

To make life work

There is a pattern and a model

It is found in our minds and in our soul

That leads us from the unknown

To one place that makes us all happy

The good book reads

As if it has been told

      Each person can make a difference we must all be individuals in our own right and not simply follow along with everyone else.

      VKP There are so many special loves that we can do in groups and clubs.Then there are certain things we must do alone.Tapping into our own abilities and talents where we have to find ourselves.We may have to spend endless hours and years practicing alone on a dream no one else may see.To become the person that makes us the most happy.Thanx so much for reading and commenting.Mhatter99 It's funny how for years all I wanted to do is be a part of something special.Then the more I read and learn it says that people with the most success have found their unique niche so different than everyone else.I can't figure it out.Thanx so much for sharing and I would love to read your many stories and adventures.May you both have a great day.

      It might seem that as one person we don't have a lot of power to change things but since I've heard the speech of Malala Yousafzai at the UN, I believe that one person can really change things. Other young people started special projects like Ryan Hreljac a 6 years old Canadian boy in 1999 who couldn't accept that in some countries kids would not have water available easily. Now as a young adult, he is speaking around the world about the importance to have water accessible for everybody.

      It gives me hope to see that some young people can have a vision and the determination to bring their project into reality! So yes, one person can definitely change the world :-)
