Since my last couple of poems were a little on the negative side, I’ve decided to post a little something more upbeat this week. Without further ado, then, here’s a little Shakespearean sonnet that more or less speaks for itself called Diff’rent’s Just Diff’rent. Please enjoy!
Diff’ren’t’s Just Diff’rent
November 8, 2013
Just ‘cause you’re diff’rent doesn’t mean you’re wrong.
Even the unpopular can be right.
Not ev’ryone enjoys the same old song
Or reading the same story day and night.
As somebody once said, it “takes all kinds”
To keep this world turning, whether or not
Anyone cares to admit such a find.
All that matters is that you’re not a snot.
Treat others with respect and dignity,
Never let your detractors bring you down,
Always be the best person you can be,
And who knows? Your bad luck might turn around.
Diff’rent is just diff’rent, simple as that.
Being a good person—that’s where it’s at.
That should do it for today. Thank you all for stopping by, and remember this: Just because you’re different from everybody else doesn’t make you a “freak,” nor does it make you wrong just because you think differently than everybody else does. People are people, after all, as Depeche Mode once said back in 1984, and so long as you be a good person and don’t go out of your way to harm others—or yourself, for that matter—you’re an okay human being who’s worth getting to know. It’s he or she who is too ignorant to give you a chance, therefore, who is the despicable one. That being said, here’s to all who embrace their individuality while trying to make this world a better place in one way or another. Aside from that, feel free to visit my author pages at Smashwords.com, Amazon.com, and Amazon.co.uk, and as always, happy reading!
