Truly

Swirling possibilities
Too swift to catch
Fleeting hope
Melts like snowflakes on your tongue

Inequalities defined by perception
Truth like an onion
Layered
with skin

Curiosity invites vulnerability
A messenger on your doorstep
Even blinking takes time
The blink of an eye
all the same
all the same

Is difference unlike uniqueness?
Absolute Uniqueness
A joy
A curse
A founding member of pain

The double-edged sword of openness
The labels, the questions, the whispers,
the onlookers, smiling facades, vipers

I can be myself
No less
Not for you
who cares not for me

I must be myself
It’s my role
I have no understudy
None but timetime

  1. But don’t we all have to be ‘different’ in order to discover our unique gifts to bring to the world? If we were all the same, how boring that would be and then how could we, the world, move forward, without different perspectives, different experiences, different knowledge learned in our individual lives. Be grateful for your uniqueness, embrace your vulnerability in times of uncertainty. How else will you grow enough to change the world?

    • Agreed. The statement is more of an awareness of the cost of being unique, but that those who judge you for being unique yourself are not worth the effort. “Be grateful for your uniqueness, embrace your vulnerability in times of uncertainty. How else will you grow enough to change the world?” – Beautiful! Love it!
