The odd bird always strikes your eye,
there is no hiding in a flock.
Chances to be seen are high
especially when of different stock.
You stand out and you feel alone,
self-confidence your sole support.
Don’t sink in pity-party’s groan,
which doesn’t help and is for naught.
Keep your head above the water,
feel your value as mankind.
Times of doubts are getting shorter
and future leaves the past behind.
