Mummy, “What is Different ?” you say,
My reply “It’s a word used today!”,
To be different is not a sin,
There’s plenty of room for “different” to live in.
There’s the air we breathe and share,
There’s the Love we share and care,
There’s the food we grow and eat,
There’s the Earth beneath our feet.
Mummy, ” I don’t know what it means” you say,
My reply, “It means the same with a twist today”,
Being different is a change to embrace,
It’s a Love to share, not to disgrace.
There’s the Culture with a language new,
Learning new words for me and you,
There’s the taste upon the food,
To be savoured and chewed.
Mummy, “Can I be different ?” you say,
“Yes” I reply, “You can start today”,
Love Life, People and the colours of the rainbow,
And you’ll be different and free to know.
To be Different is to embrace all that is on the Earth,
It is the Joy of watching everything that’s new from food to Birth,
It is the Love of your fellow man and to share what you both do,
To be Different is to Love and to be Loved too.
Mummy, “I love to be different” you say,
I reply, “Son, you make my day”,
“You are my Rainbow and my Earth”,
“Forever more,and as always, from the day of your Birth”.
For the Love of Our “Different” . To Love, To Share, To Care and To Be Loved for All On Earth.
