The Originality

.

“Thank goodness

I was never

sent to school;

it would have

rubbed off some

of the originality.”

~ Beatrix Potter

not old

first time through

not a used thing

fresh

avant-garde

Poem:

.

be happy you are you and not me
inside of others heads we cannot see
I am happy to be me and not you
then, neither of us would have a clue

let the children be children
their personality is already built in
let others be others if they must
it is only in God that we can trust

billions of souls every one of them unique
the fortunate survive to become an antique
just be glad that you are you
find the way, you may become a guru*

.

  • *guru   ” from Hindi and Punjabi, from Sanskrit guru
    ‘weighty, grave’ (compare with Latin gravis ),
    hence ‘elder, teacher’.”
    gu – one, an elder   ru – who shows the way, teacher
