Different is not a negative word,
Despite all the rumors you might have heard,
There are those who are nervous about the differences they see,
They much prefer similarity.
There are those who think being different is bad or worse,
As if it’s some sort of horrible, terrible curse,
Being different is not a disease or fault,
No one is the same, although that’s what you may have thought.
You might learn a thing or two from the differences you find,
You might even discover something that opens your mind,
Causing you to marvel at the differences you see,
A look, an idea, a personality.
Take time to experience the differences that exist,
They can give your life an exciting, new twist,
Yes, despite all the rumors you might have heard,
Different is not a negative word.
