The One Quite Different - Poem by Francis Duggan

The one quite different from the common crowd
To peer pressure he remains as unbowed
He does not succumb to the politics of fear
He thinks for himself and his thoughts are always clear.

The one quite different thinks in his own way
And though many disagree with some of the things he has to say
He will speak out against what he sees as a wrong
The belief of a fair go in his heart beats strong.

The one quite different from others stand apart
He is one with compassion in his heart
For people who are far worse off than he
The sinned against and those in poverty.

The one quite different for to be different is known
But he is one with a mind of his own
He will not be swayed by the majority
Of peer pressure he is completely free.

The one quite different is known to be kind
But he is one who makes up his own mind
On things the majority see as quite okay
Some words of criticism he often has to say.
