To be deranged
is quite unique,
standing alone
for all to see.

Different ways
lead to a thought,
no telling how
or why it formed.

Out of the box
is how we think,
oppressed by most
making us shrink.

Never afraid
to speak our truth,
for words expressed
we gather proof
Otherwise facts
are seen as lies,
no tainted words
instead stained eyes.
Our views may be
instead of seen
as clues for good.

If uniformed
is not your way,
keep your head high
pave your today.

A peaceful poise
can hold your hand,
bringing you hope
without demands
As confidence
becomes your friend,
a newfound
in you extends.
A self-belief
will guide your path,
igniting hearts
with light-filled baths.
An inner strength
will take control,
marking your words
making you bold.
Self-love increased
confidence too,
in a rare world
made just for you
