Kids Who are Different

Kids Who Are Different


Here's to the kids who are different,

The kids who don't always get A's,

The kids who have ears twice the size of their peers,

And noses that go on for days...


Here's to the kids who are different,

The kids they call crazy or dumb,

The kids who don't fit, with the guts and the grit,

Who dance to a different drum...


Here's to the kids who are different,

The kids with the mischievous streak,

For when they have grown, as history's shown,

It's their difference that makes them unique.

All other parts of education aside, *this* is what I hope I can teach my kids: we are all created to be 'different' and the heart of a person is what God values.
Very nice little poem!
