"We see our better selves in the eyes of those who love us." -Cassandra Clare

I used to think that I was

a different kind of girl.

That God sent me down here

to help change the world.


I used to think that I was

a helpless fallen angel,

that fell from the sky

down into a world of sorrow.


I used to think that I was

a special new type of human,

that was stronger than the rest

and could take more abuse.


I now know that I am not

any different at all

except that I will fight

before I fall.

I read all three of your poems, and liked this the most (5/5*). Your words have sense and explain wishes of many-to be unique and you made it clear that it isnt about that. Also you said what you had to say in a constructive way and use of language, like it very much!! :)

"Do what I do. Hold tight and pretend it's a plan!"

What a great message. Of course, if everyone's unique, then aren't we all the same in a sense? Too many times have I read about people trying to convince themselves they are different, unique, special... this is refreshing. You don't need to be special to make a difference.
