It’s not me, it’s you..

The dust doesn’t settle
So I turn it into gold,
Taking in my grasp
What I can control.
A doctor once told me
I didn’t need fixing,
“Brains like yours
Are what is missing”.
But they tie anchors
to my tired shoes,
Throw me in the sea
From the path I choose.
Life throws me lemons
And I make orangeade,
This life is treated like
A circus at a masquerade.
Being different
Is what makes us unique,
But people point and laugh
And call us freaks.
Maybe we’re different
Because we don’t follow,
We empower ourselves
Instead of social morals.

    Be yourself
    Set the trend
    Ignore the noise
    Never bend.

    Your vision clear
    Your heart so true
    Your eyes are open
    Grand to be you.

    ” Maybe we don’t follow / We empower ourselves . ..” I liked this summation very much. We are pressed in life to conform, but to be ourselves takes strength and that strength helps us empower ourselves while others blindly follow. Awesome poem!
