Nothing special

The day I wandered into this world
God’s light didn’t shine
Fated destiny didn’t rein down its angels
I was not the chosen one
Apart from the tear in my da’s eye
As he stood shaking by the hospital bed

As I wandered further into this world
World peace did not reign
World war three did not break out
I felt quite ordinary
As I warmed friends hearts
And broke lovers’ (and they mine)

As I stand now in this world
I have given
I have felt loved
I have felt joy and ecstasy
I have felt alone
I have seen that anger and ego can sit side by side with hope
And that giving is the hardest greatest thing to do

This is for anyone who ever felt like nothing special
We all know how you feel.
