I Am Different

I am different

And I cannot change

I see things differently

I sound different

I prefer the trees

To human company

I like to be alone

And think about life

Because when I’m alone

I’m most accompanied

I like to dress different

With baggy shirts

And colorful shoes

I don’t work well with others

But I’m great on my own

I don’t know what to say under pressure

Or to new people

But I’m great with animals

I’m not like everyone else

I am different

And I will not change

Sometimes people are just afraid of what they don’t understand and that is why they refuse to accept change. People think that being different is a bad thing but it’s not, it’s a good thing because it just means you’re brave enough to break away from the norms and make your own way through life. We need to stop judging people for tiny details that don’t matter like race, gender, religion or values. We are all different but we need to embrace these differences and allow everyone around us to be who they are without trying to force them to change into what our idea of acceptable is. If we could all just peacefully co-exist we could eliminate so many problems around the world like war. Whether we like to accept it or not change is an inevitable part of life and I hope someday we can all learn to live together as one.
