Weather you walk your path in total darkness or blazing light you are equally blind. But blend the two into balanced portions and your path becomes much clearer.

Equal Uniqueness - Thursday Think Tank

Someone is most likely better at something than you

Better than you can ever hope to be

No matter how hard you work

This person will probably excel far past you

And with less effort put forth

None of us are true equals

Except in our uniqueness

And you are truly unique

Nothing exactly like you has ever existed before

And never will again

For even if you will be reincarnated

And are born again

The new born you

Will not be exactly like you right now

But will again be something truly unique

Just like you


This is less poetic and more thoughtful compared to my others works. I've written two other poems similar to this The Great Equalizer and Imperfect Universes but decided to write something new combining the two. I hope you enjoy, but mostly I hope it causes you to think and possibly see things from a different perspective.


  1. I agree, we are all unique and equal. Very well written poem!

  2. Excellent take on the prompt, with much truth to it! =)


  3. Yes, I love it - each of us is unique and while others may say it, write it, do it better.....each voice is unique and distinct and there is some equality in that. I loved reading this. Good work!

  4. Diane: Thank you very much for your words.

    Weasel: Thank you a well, I try to put as much truth as I can in my works. Even if I'm writing a bit of new mythology.

    Sherry: Thank you, I enjoyed your take on this, it got me thinking and gave me a different perspective.

  5. authentic words,
    uniqueness make the world beautiful,
    equality makes the world peaceful and respectful...
    thanks for sharing a unique message with us!
    masterfully done!

  6. Thank you very much, I adore the truth in your words.

  7. Thank you very much, I am glad you enjoyed my work.

  8. ...None of us are true equals
    Except in our uniqueness...

    ...true indeed...felt.

  9. Too many forget just how unique they truly are and how that connects them to each and every thing.

  10. What you say is true, I feel good about myself now, xk

  11. I'm very happy to hear that, now keep that feeling going.

  12. Uniqueness is indeed the great equalizer but so many don't take advantage of it, nice one. Take care,


  13. Looksofar,
    You are quite right when you say that we are not all the same.
    We are each unique, but we should be afforded an equal opportunity in life.
    Liked your words very much.

  14. I hope we can all learn to be more accepting of each others differences, too many don't seem to understand you don't have to agree with someone to accept them.

    Thank you, I am glad you enjoyed my work.

  15. Thank you for your enjoyment as well.
