#Poetrychallenge – Difference

Nature is full of difference. Each snowflake has a different pattern, each tree has a different shape and each flower has a slightly different colour. I look up at the stars, each one a twinkling sequin in the dark sky, all different sizes. So why then, do we think people should all be the same? Why must we all fit into the same mould, be square pegs in a square hole? What is wrong with a round peg?

Difference is great

It keeps the world interesting

It’s just like artwork

or a splendid orchestra

Life isn’t all black and white
