A poem that shows I have moved somewhere better

June 25, 2011


My ordinary life becomes
less and less
ordinary as I contemplate
the birds, the clouds
and the stars.

My life merges
with everything else
and I realise
I am not ordinary,
I am special.

As special as the clouds,
each one different,
as special as the birds,
chattering in a tongue
I cannot decipher.

As special as the stars
that we look up to
and that look down on us
from a great distance
in time and space.

We are all special,
we are, none of us,
ordinary. Embrace
all that is special
in yourself and in
everything around you.

I am special,
you are special,
we are all special.
