Different, Not Better


You hang a sheepskin

And I sport tattoos

You dress to win

I wear jeans of blue

You wax your Benz

I, a stallion in steel

You have many friends

I, a more intimate feel

You sport your wealth

In a life undenied

I focus myself

More on the inside

Different as we may be

We share something true

I can only be this me

And you can only be you

    well said, we are who we are

  2. Only the truly greedy, if asked to make a choice, would choose someone other than you in this. I’m glad you’re not the other person!

    This is another one the entire world needs to read! We might be different, but we are all human!

    We have to be true to ourselves, and our friends and loved ones accept us that way as we do them.

  6. As it should be. A very well said statement.

  7. You are a good egg, Brad.

    Lovely comparative piece Brad. I often see in black and white which I am truly trying to change. I don’t have much in between and I am constantly working on that part of my personality. You sound a lot like myself. I use to force myself to try and spend time with people that were so different from me hoping to be a positive model. I don’t do that anymore as it was too hard on me. There are some things like horrific racism that I just can’t listen to or be around. I also spend a lot of time inside too. However, we have a smart car I am really afraid of Motor cycles. Sending you big hugs and lots of love. 🤗❤️🦋🥰

      Thank you, Jonikins! We do not have to agree with or even understand the differences between us, we just have to accept them. Sending love in return!

        This is true my friend but when I meet someone who must talk about something that goes against everything I believe in and humanity itself, if that person can’t agree that it is something I prefer not to talk about then it is not someone I can be around. For example if I continue being around someone who makes racist slurs and comments and don’t say something about it then I feel like a hypocrite or a racist myself. I still pray for these people but honestly there is just a limit to what my tender ears can tolerate anymore. I hope this makes sense to you. I don’t actually think that is what you mean anyway. You are too kind of a person yourself to be in the company of others I am referencing. I too am sending love, prayers and hugs as always. ❤️🤗Jonikins
