“Dare to be Different” Poem by Helen Lowrie Marshall

Dare to be Different

Helen Lowrie Marshall

Dare to be different; life is so full
Of people who follow the same push-and-pull,
Poor, plodding people who, other than name,
Try to pretend they’re exactly the same.

God made us different; there never will be
A replica soul made of you or me.
The charm—the glory of all creation
rests on this very deviation.

Your charm—your own glory, too,
Lies in being uniquely you—
Lies in being true to your best,
That part of you different from all the rest.”
