Different - Poem by Mehri Mehraban

I seem really So different
Don't pay attention my difference
See amazing things in my pack!

A delicious fruit you didn't taste
A new word for life, love and faith
Unheard voice,  Untouched sense

You ignore me simply, perhaps
My land don't appear in your maps!
Sometimes, indifference is worse than death!

I'm unfamiliar with you, only 
You're not accustomed to me.
We grow accustomed to be accustomed!

Respect for difference is found in quotes
In student's book, in ‌intellectual's notes 
being difference is So terrible In real world!

Most people choose to be similar,
‌no doubt, a safe way, a rescuer,
But, I reveal the secret, 'I'm unknown version of you! '
