Different Is Me


 
Different Is Me

 
I am different, but that’s okay

Because different is me.

 

I may have no arms to hug you

Or legs that can run and play

 

I am different and that’s okay

Because different is me.

 

My smile may look funny to you

Or my eyes that can’t see your face

 

I am different and that’s okay

Because different is me.

 

Sometimes my brain can’t think

Or my words come out wrong

 

People look away when they see me,

They are just uncomfortable, but you see

 

I am different and that’s okay

Because different is me.

 

My skin may be dark or light,

I may be short or very tall

 

I may  not be able to sit still

Or read this story to you

 

I am different and that’s okay

Because different is me

 

My soul reaches out to touch yours,

Together we are different, yet the same.

 

I need to be loved, just like you

In my own unique way.

 

I am different and that’s okay

Because different is me!

I have a Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education and a Master’s degree in Special Education. I was an at home mom and taught a home pre-school program while my children were growing up, went back to school to finish my degree when my youngest started school. I love teaching, love learning and love the amazing, undaunted spirit of children that need a little different kind of love and attention.

  2. Reading this poem made me cry. It shows what a big heart you have, and that you have love for the children.
