One of a Kind


I am but a link in a chain

No stronger than the next

I am but a star in night sky

No brighter than the rest


I am but a grain of sand

Alone, I am not the shore

I am but a cloud in the sky

Just one of so many more


I am but a leaf on the flower

That helps the beauty show

I am but a tree in the forest

Where all the others grow


I am but a fish in the sea

Strongest within the school

I am but a drop in the bucket

Not why the bucket is full


I am but a second in infinity

Many before and many behind

Yet, how I live my life should be

As if I am one of a kind

    Yet so TRUE


  4. “I am like money, I go where I want to without asking permission, without an invitation, I follow my will…” Your poem…beautifully written…inspired some words of wisdom, I think, or perhaps not. But your work is magnificent. All the best.

  5. I’ve known you for all 60 years of your life, dear brother, and you are truly one of a kind!

    We are part of a whole and we must always remember our part matters and effects others. ❤️
