A Poem by Sarah Marie

I am a fish

In a sea of countless others

Who have prettier fins

That shimmer far brighter than mine;

I am a bird

In an endless sky

Shared by eagles to robins

That better soar than I;

I am a woman

Surrounded by one million more,

Many fairer, many smarter, and many kinder-

Yet not one is quite like me.

I am my own,

Free to do as I please,

Free to live and learn and roam

In ways unique to only me.

I loved how you used comparisons to show how there are people always 'better' than us, but should never waste time comparing ourselves and instead be happy with who we are. We are all unique in our own way: and that's a good thing! Good work :)

How comparisons can only break us. Your confessions make my heart ache, for no one could ever take your place. In the wildness of this universe you are here and that is beautiful beyond belief, dear one.
