    Poem Commentary

    Well these were what my thoughts boiled down to one day at work while facing yet again the obstacle that others seem to keep putting in my path to my future, that of my past and more specifically the mistakes I've made to learn the lessons that I refused to learn in any other way. Also my appearance and that so many others dislike hearing the truth especially if it isn't what they expect or it doesn't match their view.

    Just a thought

    I was created to be unique, a one of a kind original.
    That was my creators intent from the beginning.
    For my creator new me even before I was.
    My creator new, that through me could be given to all that come into contact with me, maybe even to the whole world, something that no one else could in their own uniqueness.
    Therefore I refuse to compromise or sacrifice any part of who I am or who I was created to become.
    Not for anyones acceptance, understanding, or approval.
    I will never become just another carbon copy of anyone or any group.
    I will never be a blind follower in any herd.
    I would rather be alone and cast out, an anathema, than to limit or retard my  own growth or possibilities. 
    If doing right, working hard and treating others equally, fairly and with respect, as I myself wish to be treated, isn't good enough.
    Then the individual or group that is not satisfied needs to look deep inside towards that place in us all of us where we hear a voice which is not ours.
    And when there and the voice begins to speak ever so softly, shut up and listen closely.
    And maybe, just maybe, they too will understand and value their own uniqueness and special place in this world also. 
    And understand that they need never be like anyone else, or expect another to be like them, to gain or give approval from or to them.
    And as  for the special, personal gift given to each of us by our creators, I know not yet what that gift given to me is.
    But I do know this much, the gift was given us without any conditions through grace.
    And the way to show our appreciation for it and to give back is to use it to the best of our abilities to benefit, help and enlighten as many others as possible.
    Also that no one need ever out of fear censor their words if they speak the truth.
    Hide their emotions if thats how they feel or share their thoughts because others may not approve or agree.
