Left out Due To Differences – Vincen Tabatha

Why Different iz Good Exists!

Different

by Vincen Tabatha

How are we so “different“?
If “different” is just a thing.
If we all have certain features,
What does “different” bring?

People filled with hatred,
Can’t possibly see,
That there’s not really “differences
Between you and me.

Looks can’t show “difference”,
If they’re just there to be seen.
If you don’t look like someone else,
Why are they so mean?

If being “different” is what is wrong,
I’d rather not be right.
And I’d want to finish living,
Doing the “different” fight.

  1. wasn’t sure where to submit a poem, i hope the body of the comment is o.k.
    I wrote this poem for my granddaughter Hailey. Hailey is 3 and has Athetoid C.P. and is also non verbal.

    Her voice so soft, like a whisper.
    Most times even approximate, but none the less
    it is sweet music to my ears.
