There is no such thing as ordinary.
This word and others are just labels
Used by people who lack true vocabulary.
These phrases just make people feel enabled
To disregard each other.
In reality, everybody is different from one another.
There is no such thing as boring.
Only people who refuse to go exploring
And find out what everyone has inside.
Boring is a boldfaced lie used by people who want to hide.
There is much more than just the superficial
It all comes down to being better than prejudicial.
There is no such thing as being a nobody.
The quiet loner or the one who seems to be organized
Are just judgements that are hyperboles.
Trying to get to know those around you will leave you surprised
Because everyone has something that is truly rare.
We are all more than just a body full of air.
The worst thing of all is when we believe in these phrases
When we laugh at ourselves or hang our heads in sadness,
We give power to these words that create only madness.
Everyone deserves to hear only praises,
But some people refuse to dig down
And find what makes them renowned.
