Incomparable Me

Is my sin somehow worse than yours?
Does it some how offer you strength?
Is that perch really so high?
I have been knocked off of many perches
My greatest sadness has come from comparisons
The times I felt superior 
The times I some how felt I was less
Always someone was higher
Others were also lower
If only in my own mind
Some made me feel stronger, faster, smarter
Others said I was not worthy
Who was I to believe?
It always seemed easier to believe the least
It required less work
Low expectations could always be met
In the end is anyone comparable
All are uniquely different
No one in the history of man will ever be the same
I will not strive to be you
I embrace myself
I will witness the evolution of me
The incomparable me

    I am so honored to be the first to comment on this, Richard. I just love Free verse, because somehow the heart always finds a way to speak! This is not just awesome and beautiful... our uniqueness shows us how beautiful God is, encompassing all, accepting all; different yet the same!! This I will add to my favs.! Always, annalise
