We Become More Unique the More We Grow Up

We all grow up,

Even if we do not want to, we still do.

There is no one in this world that can stop the time.

None of us are magicians.

None of us are special.


But we all are unique.

Too unique that we cannot find anyone that is exactly like us.

We become more unique the more we grow up.

We gain more experience to become more unique.


No two handprints are the same.

My fingers are a bit different than my friends;

Inherited from my parents.

No two feet are the same.

I have unique pinky-toes

That can do something no one else can.

No two faces are the same.

I have an Asian face.

No two hearts are the same.

Being an Anime and Manga lover already makes me unique.


I could always search around the world,

And still never find someone

Who is quite the same as me.

But you can always find someone

Who is similar.
