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😊

This is lovely and true! I think it could be a bit shorter, but at the same time, you drive home all of the points you present, so more power to you.

Hi Riddhi
I loved the way you started this poem. No better way to drive home the point. Rather than being as good or strong or intelligent or talented or kind as so and so, try and have as much of the desired quality as possible. Although there should be a line between being yourself and not being zealous to be better. But you capped it well when you said that it's best to make the most of every day, to improve, learn and grow every day. That's the way to live, and not sitting idly with arms crossed having a plaque on a table in front of you that says "I am unique" or "I am me".

a very mature bit of poetry
I am not sure it hurts to aspire somewhat, but we certainly are who we are and unique in that way

Thank you..
poem reminds me of my school days, where I was busy in competing with others, forgetting my own 'abilities'. This poem should made mandatory to read every parent as well as student:)
While going through the poem it feels so realistic, and no doubt you have experienced it and penned it splendidly. beautiful piece of work.
"Everyone born is unique on this earth,
with his own precious value and worth.
With his own unique abilities ,
And his own disabilities ."

wow, this write is a great piece
I'm me, you are you, and they are they
everyone is created with atleast one divine ability
but others still chose to be others
search yourself and you find something
why chose to be like someone?
Look innermost you will get something
anything found is tangible no matter how small
build it, love it and dedicate yourself to it...
why chose to be like someone?
when you are the unique one

Thanks for your review..I am happy that you agree with me..
This is beautiful and so true. We seek to emulate others and don't even know ourselves.

We can be 'like' others, but there is so much more to who we are than who we try to be.

Really inspiring
