Author has written 7 stories for Harry Potter.
this is just another poem from my English main course book... you see, we have 3 textbooks, and there is always a confusion on which one to bring. On a certain day ( right after a vacation) all of us had bought such a variety that is was impossible for the teacher to start anything. so she got one boy to read this poem to the class.
Usually no one pays much attention in English lectures, but this poem got the whole class silent as he read it, each clinching to each word, thinking it to be dedicated to himself/ herself. I later read it to my mum and got the same effect... The simple poem, in simple words tell us how special each of us are. We tend to see differences as disadvantages, weakness and wish we are like some other... this poem makes you stop, and realize that these differences make us unique and in turn special.
hats of to Vanessa Ohri... her poem really does make a difference. As my friend quotes " Kitani baadhi baat kitane aasani se kaha daali..." (She gave us such a deep message in such simple words)
So here goes, i hope you enjoy it as much as i did...
I am SPECIAL,and so are YOU.
Imagine just how boring it would be
If mother nature believed in UNIFORMITY!?
All living beings the same in color and shape
The ant and the ape!
A leopard and a bear!
A watermelon and a pear!!!
The birds soaring high;
The clouds floating by
The leaves on every tree...
The fish in every sea...
And as a further blow to individuality
Hey,may be even you...and me!!
Eeeeeks!! wouldn't life be a tragic shame!
If everything looked
Thank God that we all have our own shapes and sizes
With different looks,talents and surprises
Each with a special strength and may be,a weakness
And you know...that's what gives us our uniqueness!
I've got friends who are fat and friends who are tall
Friends who are skinny and some who are small
Friends who are gawky,friends who have grace
Some who are slow...and some with pace
Friends who wear glasses or use a wheelchair
Friends who wear braces or funny things in their hair!!
Friends whom I help...and friends who help me
But friends forever...as we were meant to be...
Some are really brainy,ahead of the rest,
Scoring superbly in every class test
Some are winners in many other ways
In music...dancing...painting...or on sports days...
Then, there are others who might not win any prizes
But watch out,they too are full of surprises
That's because each of us is one of a kind
Specially created...specially designed...
We each have a purpose,each have a role
Each with a dream,each with a goal
We each are different,special..rare
Each an answer to a special prayer...
So love who you are,in life have an aim
Be happy to be special not boringly same
Be who you are...do what you do
We are all really special..coz I am I...And you are YOU!!!!
