Being Different

I have always felt that I am different than others.
I know everyone is unique, & have their own life experiences.
For the most part we can relate to the same feelings.

But there's something different about me and sometimes
I don't understand who or even what I am.

As time went on, I started peeling away my layers.
I'm finding myself, and now I know why I'm different.
There's parts of me I love. There's parts of me I'm trying to love.

And then I discovered,
I'm not on the outside alone trying to look in,
& it's not that I'm different than you.
It's that your different than me.

I think that most are different from me too!! But that is my uniquness--as we all have it- Most of me are parts that I am trying to love...I have been intolerant of me as much as I have felt different from you...imagine that!!<br />

n626: Thanks for commenting. I think it's cool that you can relate. Now I feel a little bit less alone.

Wow that was wonderfully put! I can relate to these words....only I''m still discovering who i am.

but it's the differences which make us unique and beautiful. Perhaps you are just that little bit more unique and beautiful than most.
