No I am not like you, I am like me; with a mindset blueprint that’s an original, fingerprints and a heart beat, my own.
No I am not beautiful like you I am beautiful like me; a masterpiece, uniquely sculptured first in my Maker’s mind, incomparable.
No I am not educated like you, I am educated in the measure the Divine dictated and my purpose affirms is sufficient for me.
No I am not a clown in the image of him, her or them. Nor a clone programmed to mimic those deemed the good, real and great.
Yes, I am the one and only me, myself and I.
In today’s world there is so much pressure to look like someone else or achieve what they have achieved and this has escalated to dangerous proportions. I was horrified to see pictures of a young man who has had so much plastic surgery to look like his idol, Kim Kardashian. I was saddened and thought of how what would have been his own life path or destiny has been discarded for a life as Kim Kardashian’s clone. This is one example of multitudes of similar cases were people live as clones or aspire to live as clones of someone else.
We are all uniquely made and indeed if we self-reject it is as if we are saying to our Maker that He made a mistake! We may not see ourselves as beautiful or we may feel insecure about certain areas of our lives, however we must come out of self pity and a deceptive mindset in relation to our worth. Such thinking and attitude is aimed at causes paralysis; the inability to complete otherwise productive projects, take risks that will eventually result in much success or achievement.
Each human being has an inner and external beauty that is unique and a purpose in life that is also unique even if it may be similar to that of others. This is regardless of skin colour, culture, nationality, economic or social status.
We each have potential to excel and live productive lives. But this is only possible if we concentrate on our strengths and work to overcome our weaknesses rather than concentrate on what others are doing, what they have and what they look like in comparison to ourselves. May this poetic discourse “unapologucally me” be a source of personal reflection or meditation and encouragement.
