Why follow the others, like sheep in a herd

Or dress all alike or say similar words?  

     Why laugh at the things which you do not find funny,  

     Wasting your time and perhaps even money?


Then dare to be different.  Do things that you like.

There’s one thing that’s certain, we aren't all alike.    

      You’re unique in yourself and quite different to others.

      You're not like your friends or your sisters or brothers.


If you’re unhappy with life, then quickly change course

And don’t end your days with a lifetime’s remorse.

    Take a look at yourself.  Be different.  Yes, dare!

    Don’t take the slow train to I think you know where.

Reflective/Thinking Poems

An educational publisher, Mr Stan Sharp, took the 400 poems I'd written in 2010 into classrooms right across West Yorkshire.  This was one of those which was chosen for publication and it was published in my book Josie's Poems "Reflections".  Sadly it is out of print now, but you can find it, as you see, and many others by simply Googling JOSIE'S POEMS.  Please do tell your children.  Josie
