To Be Different From Others - Poem by Francis Duggan

To be different from others is never a shame
How boring we would be if we all were the same
If on anything we never could disagree
How utterly boring as people we would be
People are born to be tribal anthropologists say
And many are followers and some lead the way
And those without a tribe always on their own
To those in the majority as loners are known
And though you may be an outsider and live in your own way
And of anyone an untrue thing do never say
Then as a person you are doing okay
And respect to you for who you are others ought to pay
And to be different from others is never a shame
How boring we would be if we all were the same.
