Different


Different. It is said
Whether Destined or Desired,
They don’t know
But She is Different.

It’s a Longing,
For something unforeseen, that
She has
It’s A need that cannot be Culled,
Or cured or confiscated or commandeered;
It’s A sentiment,
That cannot be stripped
That cannot be seized

It is a sentiment that grows
Unruly, restless, climbing through her
Threatening to escape through every breath,
To Pour out with every conversation
To prove her wrong, To prove her different

But the drive, the dedication, the desire she has
Shouldn’t be destroyed for the difference.
Shouldn’t be ripped apart, piece by piece
For the person that she is

Nor should everything be shredded,
From her values to her beliefs,
From her success to her strength
Merely,
Merely,
For her Difference.

But torn apart, she will be
And left untouched
She will never be
She is the difference.

Not just that
Here, she is the crime
The secret, the oppressed.
She is the traitor, the immoral
And the countless other things
That follow her title
of difference

Her title that will always precede her
That will block her path
The title, that she will have to break down
And build back up innumerable times
To forge her own path to success
And succeed she will!

But in the end, we’ll have returned
We’ll come back to the difference.
Because she is Different, It is Said
Whether Destined or Desired,
They Don’t Know
 But She is Different.
