Nothing Normal

I can’t be normal, I can’t be nothing. My heart doesn’t beat to the sound of the everyday drum. I can’t be normal; the power of change is in me, The power of change is me. I can’t be normal, I can’t be nothing. Great are my lips and the words they speak. Miraculous are my hands and the art they create. I can’t be normal, I can’t be nothing. My tone is cocky, my thoughts are not of this world. I think great therefore I am, I know I’m great therefore I will be. I can’t be normal, I can’t be nothing. Others tell me what I am not, Not pretty enough or not skinny enough. I tell them what I am, painted in the image of God, more beautiful than life itself. I won’t be normal, I won’t be nothing. The world is mine to change, I am change. I have never been normal, I won’t ever be nothing. Nothing is normal, therefore I am great.

    Not normal but unique is what each of us is. Even your verse is part of you and you give it to the rest of us to share. How special!
