Once In A While - Poem by Brian Hairbottle
Once in a while you meet someone,
and soon you both discover the two of you are truly
something special to each other...
You share your thoughts and feelings so
relaxed, so openly, and right away you know
your friendship's truly meant to be.'
Life isn't about keeping score.
It's not about how many friends you have
Or how accepted you are.
Not about if you have plans this weekend or if you're alone.
It isn't about who you're dating, who you used to date, how
many people you've dated,
or if you haven't been with anyone at all.
It isn't about who you have kissed, It's not about sex.
It isn't about who your family is or how much money they have
Or what kind of car you drive.
Or where you are sent to school.
It's not about how beautiful or ugly you are.
Or what clothes you wear,
what shoes you have on,
or what kind of music you listen to.
It's not about if your hair is blonde, red, black, or brown
Or if your skin is too light or too dark.
Not about what grades you get,
how smart you are,
how smart everybody else thinks you are,
or how smart standardised
tests say you are.
It's not about what clubs you're in
or how good you are at
It's not about representing your whole being
on a piece of paper
and seeing who will 'accept the written you'
