They Make Us Better Not Worse
When did we all become the same?
Last I checked we look different
Because we are different
That is a good thing
We have the right to think and be who we want to be
Not a copycat
An original instead of a forgery
Why can't we start celebrating our uniqueness?
Be proud of our ability to see the world in a different light
Life would be pretty boring if we all were the same
It is time to stop!
We have to help each other achieve
Our secret potential
How do we do this?
By trying different things
No matter what it is
It can be simple
Eating different foods
Learning different customs
Listening to someone else's opinion different than our own
Instead of being quick to judge
Trying to change people to our way of thought
Wouldn't it be nice?
To welcome change for the time being
Try seeing the world from a different view
When we fall in love with someone
Is it because they are like us?
They do the same things we enjoy
They agree with our way of life
Maybe it is also because they are different in so many ways?
They slowly show us
They have different ways to do the same thing
Which can be a good approach after all
Yesterday, I went to go outside
The wind was wild and blowing leaves around like crazy
It made working in the yard impossible
I cursed that darn wind
All I wanted to do is work outside in the yard
I did not want to change my firm belief
Each time I thought the wind had finally stopped
It began to blow even harder
Twirling and swirling everything it could
I headed indoors
Really quite mad
Now one day later
The wind is finally gone
I missed out on all the joy
Of experiencing a windy day for what it is
I could of walked outside and felt the wonderful cool breeze
Instead I couldn't get inside soon enough
Thinking my way was the only way
How wrong was I to misjudge
So next time when we think we can solve all the worlds problems
By doing something the way we would like to have it
Find a day that is so different
A day far from what you expected
Try to enjoy what you have not what you have wanted
Let the wind
Guide you to a fresh new start
An amazing wonderful new beginning

,Gypsy Rose Lee We are so much more than we think we are. Each of our bodies is made up of about 37.2 trillion cells. To see us for only one thing that we have done is missing out on everything else. To fully appreciate each person we have to understand there are so many layers that take time to understand. We can not possibly enjoy all there is in life in just one day. We need time and with that, we gain knowledge. Instead of looking at what we have done wrong. Continue appreciating all the good. Thank you for reading and caring. I appreciate every comment and lovely thoughts. It takes me a while to get back to you. I will do my best to return as quickly as possible. I sometimes go into a few days of hiding to prevent burn out. When I return I am touched by so many lovely thoughts and feelings. It is five-thirty in the morning and the sun isn't even up yet. My day has begun. With a wonderful feeling of joy and satisfaction.

This is the most challenging month for since I always add my poetry blog for NaPoWriMo so 30 poems are expected of me this month. You might like to take a look at how I am doing.

Jamie Lee Hamann It is easy to get frustrated on any given day. If we take a little more time we can make the same day awesome and appreciate it in many different ways. Bringing out the joy and sharing it with the world. Thank you for being the first to read and comment on my poem. Have a very nice night.
