IF EVERYONE

I’m sure you have heard it said,

“If everyone is special,

then no one is special.”

 

I think it’s just a way

for people

to deny their dreams,

to choke their abilities,

to hide.

 

It’s also a way to

deny others dreams,

to hold them at arm’s length,

to stay seemingly invulnerable.

 

What if we treated

ourselves

and

everyone we meet

as the unique,

gift to the world,

we actually are?
