abnormal in thought, perfect in action
2. people both love me and hate me
3. I come in all shapes and sizes
4. I’m kind of like one, but not the other
5. Sometimes you try to see me.
Do you know what I am?
When finishing my art course, I saw some options, stay in my home town with my family and either work or take a new course or move away to pursue something else.
I realistically didn’t want to go to a big university. I feel I need someone’s guidance a little more when learning and in a room with over 500 different students all trying to do the same, it becomes difficult. So I stayed and was offered to join a Digital Film Production course. I loved the idea! I love art, music, I genuinely adored animation too, so I thought why not dust off film and give it a shot?
I didn’t actually initately like film when I considered enrolling, which leads to people to most likely scream ‘Why did you take this risk then?’, because I wanted to. I wanted to learn about it, even if I originally didn’t care. I wanted to learn something different.
When arriving at my course, I made friends with some unique characters. Some different to many others I’ve ever met before. It was a relief.
People often try too hard to either be different or fit in. It’s really not worth the time. It’s best to be who you want to be in reality and for me, it was tough to get a grip of that initately until I met these people.
They showed me that what we like, shapes us. We become what we adore, hate, fear etc. We’re all pretty unique, but in being unique itself, makes us the same. So when we define what is ‘different’ to what is ‘normal’, what do we say?
The only time someone seems different to you is because of the following:
• They are mentally different
• They are physically different
• They liked things you originally would have liked, not liked or don’t know of.
...and a lot more at that!
It’s a really complicated topic to think about.
I think in reality, it’s just better to not lie about what makes you unique. Find things you like yourself, express how much you like those things or want to do those things! Imitating isn’t always bad, since imitation is what teaches us a lot of things in life but never feel afraid to add your own extra spice of individuality to what you do.
So this poem I was looking into the idea of following the structure of a Riddle, I didn’t originally intend for the numbered parts of the poem, but I thought the list structure added to it.
