Surfer's poem: You Are...

In the star-studded night sky, you are an individual star, don't try to be like 'others', be the original that you are, writes Purva Bhatia.

In the star-studded night sky,
You are an individual star.
Don't try to be like 'others'
Be the original that you are!

Why do you let your uniqueness make you shy?
Remember, every star is important to the sky.

In the bouquet of flowers
You are that beautiful red rose-
Which soothes everyone's eyes;
From which the fragrance flows

Why do few thorns deter you away?
Remember, a flower is special in many ways.

In the mighty blue ocean,
You are that little droplet
Which travels to the sky,
To come down as rain, where its need is most felt.

Why don't you let your individuality unfurl?
Remember, a drop in the shell becomes a Pearl.

In a musical composition
You are that single note,
Without which the tune is incomplete
Without which the rhythm doesn't float…

Why do you think you are unwanted?
Why do you always fume?
Remember, each note is important for a lovely tune.

Learn to have faith in yourself,
And that alone will take you far
You are special to many
Celebrate being what you are!
