Living A Creative Life

Why Are You Different?

I don’t understand you, so I will ignore you.

I find your ideals foreign, so I will rebuke you.

I have never experienced that, but I know it anyway.

When the world is changing and I don’t understand it,

I will force it to see things my way, the old way.


I have never done that, but I am an expert.

I was told it, so it must be true.

I have never met you, but I don’t like you.

The world doesn’t make sense to me,

so I will voice my naive opinion to influence it.


I see your potential, so I will encourage you.

I can see you are different, so I will accept you.

I don’t know you, but I will discover more about you.

The world is full of differences,

so I will seek to understand what makes you so.
