I read this poem in the inspirational book ‘You Were Born Rich’ by Bob Proctor and the poem is written by James T Moore – I hope you enjoy reading it!
It’s not always easy to reveal the ‘real you’ that is often buried deep within, as I highlight in a previous post Reveal Brilliance Within. This poem perfectly illustrates the importance of being your own person. I’d love to hear what you think – please leave a comment.. x
One And Only You
Every single blade of grass,
And every flake of snow—
Is just a wee bit different …
There’s no two alike, you know.
From something small, like grains of sand,
To each gigantic star
All were made with THIS in mind:
To be just what they are!
How foolish then, to imitate—
How useless to pretend!
Since each of us comes from a MIND
Whose ideas never end.
There’ll only be just ONE of ME
To show what I can do—
And you should likewise feel very proud,
There’s only ONE of YOU.
That is where it all starts
With you, a wonderful
unlimited human being.
Poet: James T. Moore
