The Most Remarkable Of Things

Do not allow yourself to be defined
definitions are nothing but a commitment to remain the same,
to never grow into anything more,
to live inside the box which has been chosen for you
by people who know nothing of you
do not confine yourself
do not succumb to expectations of society
be like the moon when she appears in the day
she presents herself during a time and in a place
where she is not necessarily welcomed
because she does not seek permission to be,
she does not require the acceptance of others to feel beautiful,
and after all, I have found that the most remarkable of things
are always those that are out of place
a flower that has bloomed through a crack in the sidewalk
the occurrence of a rainbow when it has not rained
you, standing confidently in the midst of everyone who has ever doubted you.
