Stand Out

Excellence Award in the 'Horizon of Dreams 2018' competition

Why fit in when you can stand out?
But remember not to shout!
Fitting in isn’t a big deal,
you should always do what you feel.
Standing out isn’t a bad thing,
when you have an idea you go ding, ding.
Everytime you get tanned,
you grow higher and higher in where you stand.
Standing out means you light up the stage,
fitting in just goes through a boring phase.
So don’t look down and get all blue,
get up, turn around and be the proper you.
You will be the one who will change the world,
into an awesome twirl.
