• Likeness

    I chose life, and left you behind,
    There is more to life, than just us,
    I looked at the sky and gained hope.
    No one is too special, nor too similar,
    Everyone is unique,
    With just enough unlikeness within.

    I chose life, and held it by the hand,
    I embraced my present, happily,
    I accepted the flaws that make me,
    I welcomed those that understood,
    Everyone is unique,
    With just enough unlikeness within.

    I chose life, and out poured the love,
    I became empowered to take charge,
    To be more than words can convey,
    To live without any restraint,
    Everyone is unique,
    With just enough unlikeness within.
