sharp, brittle edges
exposed to the hammer of acceptance
required to 'make it fit'
damaged beyond repair
every chip, every sliver removed
making it that much less of itself
not enough of 'another'
to everyone who tried to make me fit into their round hole of acceptance...you were wrong
to everyone I tried to make fit into my square hole of acceptance...I was wrong and I'm sorry
we are all unique, individual, special, beautiful and we all deserve to be ourselves
as Kermit would say, it's not easy being green
No, it's NOT easy being green. It's not easy being yourself. But, it is SO worth it. It takes some of us (me) a long time to get there but when we do....oh the light. Be brave. Be yourself.
