Just Can'T Help Being Different - Poem by maryam kazmi

They say that everyone
Is different

And unique in every way

Then how come the
World judges each other
So harshly

When people let their uniqueness
Show just because they do
Things differently or are
Different themselves

People look down their noses at you
It cuts you to a size of an
Atom bomb

Just can’t help being different

We cannot change though we
Did try

People say it’s important to be
Yourself

But it’s so hard when the world
Has a very little tolerance of
People who dance to the
Beat of their own drum
