Some Special One

Cinta Vidal Arrested Motion artI was wondering about you.

You seem to never care

About what you’ve got inside

That is truly yours and no one else’s.

You appeared to disregard

How unique people can be

And you’ve built that illusion

Starting with yourself.

 

You probably began thinking that way

Because of her.

How full of herself she was.

How much she believed

That the world revolved around her,

And that everyone owed her,

And that she owned everyone;

That all that she has gained

She somehow has inherited from herself.

 

I think you both went too far.

Everybody is special –

It’s so different how we talk, eat, sleep.

Sickness makes us alike,

We ache in similar ways

Yet our skills are unique

And dreams are so wild

In contrast to everyone else’s.

You deny your special gifts as if it was a curse,

Just as she ignores others.

But our differences are true

And they can unite us

Making us stronger in many ways.

 

You think you need someone special in your life

But you need to know –

You already have one.

You should praise them,

Although with good measure.

This special one needs attention,

Care and support to bloom bigger,

Unleash artistic forces

So you could achieve greater things.

The powers that you so hard try to let go of

Or call insignificant, –

They are nothing of a kind.
