Individuals

Now you remember

You are not meant, you were not built, you were not created to be like them

You’re not supposed to evolve the way they do.

You don’t have to evolve at the same time as everyone else

Everyone is meant to climb their own stairs 

you’re not meant to follow 

you’re meant to watch until they reach the top of their own individuality 

if you have not reached your stairs,

don’t panic and don’t compare

you go at your own pace.

 

 you learn and watch as people mold their figures of who they want to become. 

Don’t worry even if you are still at step one you don’t stop there, you keep going.

And don’t let the peers around you successes get you down 

if anything they should bring you up and motivate you. 

don’t use the time to compare and criticize 

but rather to learn and use to your own ability and your own strength 

This poem is about: 
Me
My community
Our world
