Poem: So Difficult.

You are too difficult,

With too many rough edges.

You choose to rebel,

While others hide behind life’s pledges.

_____________________

Your brain moves too quickly,

At a thousand miles an hour.

You gleefully eat lemons,

When others dismiss them as sour.

_____________________

You don’t smile often,

Some see this as a disaster.

But your stoicism is a challenge,

Only the weak ones will cower.

_____________________

You fly solo with the wind.

You simply refuse to give in,

To the world and all its trappings.

_____________________

To the ones who say you will never win,

Your heart wishes to let them in,

_____________________

But then you remember where you’ve been,

And you realize that it’s not a sin,

To keep a lot of yourself hidden,

_____________________

Because your secret power lies deep within:

You can turn mere thoughts into something golden.
