It’s an exquisite kind of stain;
When you’re defined as being strange
and so different from the norm, that
even your thoughts cannot conform.
So you don’t behave in the ways you should,
And told you’re naughty, when you’re being good,
Or that you’re selfish, weak, or cruel
Just because you don’t know their rules.
Just be your best – that’s all you can do,
And don’t treat others as they treat you –
Instead, treat everyone as a friend
(How they react is up to them).
Cause we might be weird – but we’re not insane;
Just blessed with atypical kinds of brains,
So make the most of all you can be –
And let’s all toast diversity.
