The unique one

The unique one

A Poem by Riddhi

Someone said i want to be as intelligent as Einstein ,
Other said i want to be as kind as Mother Teresa ,
Yet another said i want to be as brave as Malala Yousoufzai ,
Then , I wondered why people want to become like others .
Why to be like someone?
When you are the unique one.


Everyone born is unique on this earth,
with his own precious value and worth.
With his own unique abilities ,
And his own disabilities .
Why to be like someone ?
When you are the unique one.


As  fingerprints of two individual can never match ,
dreams and possibilities too  can never match .
Why to compare and compete yourself with other ,
when you yourself are your most strong competitor.
Why to be like someone?
when you are the unique one.


The story of tortoise and rabbit still keeps on inspiring me ,
the tortoise kept on running with his own speed you see.
But the rabbit compared himself with tortoise and thinking himself faster slept ,
but the tortoise inspite of knowing that he was slow than rabbit won because oblivious of anything else he gave his best.
Why to be like someone ?
when you are the unique one.


The story of tortoise and rabbit's race ,
isn't different from  our life's case.
A person who keeps on improving himself everyday , every moment better than previous,
Wins this race of life than the others who inspite of having qualities , competes with others and become over ambitious.
Why  to be like someone?
when you are the unique one.


Life is not the graph where after a point , motion stops ,
rather it is the synonym of continuous motion and progress.
Everyday comes with new energy and challenges too.
And you in desire to become more better than previous day , 
surpass the one who were in front of you as they competed with others than themselves.
Why to be like someone?
When you are the unique one.


I  don't want to be intelligent , kind and brave like others ,
Because I am Riddhi , one of the kind.
I want to be me , what others say never bothers
me, so please keep in mind.
Why to be like someone?
when you are the unique one.

This reminds me an inspiring ad of Classmate stationery!
Of course I believe there's something unique in us...And I feel bad when at present successful people have to face comparison mostly! No matter with which legend you're being compared but you're unique along with your ability!
It's strong write riddhi!
Keep it up😊

Good poem, I have no words to say about it. Nothing comes to my mind when trying to see any flaws but everything is good. Keep up the good work.

Thank you so much..I am glad to see that you liked my poem...
Why would you want to walk in someone else's shoes?
You can admire people and may want to work in their field.
But ultimately you can only ever really be yourself.

Thank you so much Suzanne...
You want to be the innovator. The one who stands out in front of the crowd. You're not afraid to prove it either. You either are or you're not. Some people can just do while others have to work. You want to be the one others look to for guidance on how to live their lives. The truth is, you just do you, and others might or might not follow. What matters most is that you make your voice heard. Whether others listen is another thing, but at least you had your shot.

Nice! It's really humble for a piece about ambition.

Actually you interpreted me correctly...Thanks for your review..
This is one of the best inspiring poems I’ve read lately. Sometimes these kinds of poems can sound preachy, but your poem sounds friendly, encouraging & uplifting, which is much better. You do a great job of drawing examples from real life & fairy tales, woven together well to illustrate your intention. I also like the way you start out giving examples of people who long to be like someone else. You use a variety of writing techniques to keep things interesting. One correction: “Why to be like someone?” (a question that’s asked many times) – would sound better as: “Why try to be like someone else?” Good job keeping things light & upbeat when many write & post sadness here (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie
