It’s Okay to be Different

The girl skipped and twirled
Not caring who may see
She was different yet the same
Inside like you and me

She listened to her special music
That others could not hear
They watched her as she danced
Around and thought it very weird

The mother knew inside the girl
Were many gifts untold
If only they all could see
This girl’s heart was pure as gold

It’s not bad to be different
The mother said to the girl
She appreciated this daughter
Who was better than all the world

        Oh, really? I hope your sight is much better now and that you enjoy it.

          I’m enjoying it a lot, actually. My sight is the same so far, so I zoomed in and now everything is really big. I can’t stay away from reading my fave stories for long. 🙂

            Ugh, I’m sorry that it persists 🙁 But you’ve found a way around it. It ain’t gonna get the better of you, no way!

          • Kymber June 7, 2018 at 10:37 am

            You are right about that! 😀 I will always find a way. haha 😀

    I wish I could give that hearts instead of a like. So lovely. I wonder what you were thinking about specifically while you weren’t sleeping, that inspired this.

      Thank you, Bee. I’m glad you liked it. 🙂 I guess nights of insomnia are good for something. haha

    What a beautiful poem. 💕💕
    How are you feeling? Are you able to see any better?

    • Kymber June 7, 2018 at 3:12 pm - Reply

      Thank you so much. 🙂

      And thank you for asking, too. 🙂 I’m about the same right now. You should see how much I’ve zoomed in on this so I can read it. LOLOL I’m in good spirits.

    I immediately thought of my grandson on the autism spectrum. He knows he’s different, and we help him be proud of himself and his own talents. He dances every day (spins and twirls like a ballet dancer, eyes closed, sweet smile of pure joy!), and your poem was so like him!! I really love it, Kymber. ♥

      Thank you so much, Marj. 🙂 Your grandson sounds like such a wonderful boy and he’s lucky to have you as a grandma, too. 🙂

    Awe, this was sweet. I love that the mother is accepting of her daughter the way she is. I aspire to be that kind of a parent. ❤️

    • Kymber June 7, 2018 at 7:02 pm - Reply

      Thank you so much. 🙂 I think if you aspire to be that kind of parent, then you are probably a good parent already. <3 <3

    Thank you. 😊 Just trying to be better than my own parents were as I’m sure everyone does! Lol

      Oh, yes, I imagine you’re right about that. 😀

    A amazing poem. My first poem I read, written by you.

    • Kymber June 8, 2018 at 10:24 am - Reply

      Thank you so much 🙂 I don’t write poetry very often. I think that’s only the third one I’ve put on my site. I really enjoy your poetry; you’re an inspiration! 🙂

        You did well and you are welcome.

    If only there are not only parents who support, cares and respect difference of their children, the world will be a better . place. Sadly, a lot of parents as well reject their children because they are lgbt. So why some difference as handicap is better accepted than lgbt in family today? Difference is awesome no matter who we are, we are born this way.

    • Kymber June 10, 2018 at 6:04 am - Reply

      I agree. 🙂 Differences make us unique. We are all of us one of a kind.

    Lovely poem – I’ve just worked on Rain man in class, and my thoughts went to a colleague who has an autistic son. My heart went out to them, reading your poem. <3
