Uncool Kids

A Poem By Damaris Ann // 11/25/2018

We don’t fit in
We sorta stand out
Standing around in our
Converse or
Bow ties
Looking like sore thumbs
But if you take a moment to talk to us
You’ll find that
There’s gold lining on
Our hearts
And though we
Don’t
Look like the cool kids
We’re cool
To
Us
‘Cause we know how to be
Kind
We know how to
Listen
To sum us up
We love
Freely and fully
We love
Unconditionally
So try not to be too cool
To say hello
Take a moment to
Hang out with us
The uncool kids
Because to be uncool is to be yourself
And that’s what we’re best at
Authentic
Raw
Real
Uncool kids

Thank you for taking the time

Thank you for taking the time to write and post this! I needed to hear this. God calls us to love all people no matter if we think they are "cool" or not. When we do we honor God and bless others!

You wrote this so well!

I don’t thrive off of chaos: chaos thrives off of me.

Whoa

I identify so well with this poem. How many times have I thought it before? These are my thoughts in poetry form. Thank you for sharing this, Damaris! :)

“The gospel alone is the power of God unto salvation.
Therefore, suffer, yes. Be misunderstood, yes. Be shamed, yes. But do not be ashamed. For the joy set before you, take up your cross, follow Jesus, be shamed and despise the shame!" -- John Piper

Aww I’m glad you can relate! You’re so sweet.
