Tom’s Poem

We at ClipDifferent take our mission and our customers very seriously. We also appreciate a good sense of humor and compassion for humans of all stripes and abilities. In that spirit, we wanted to share this great poem by our founder, Tom McMullen.

Hassled and hurried you seem not to care
It probably only registered that I had no hair.

I love you and of myself, I will give
What a blessed life I’ve been allowed to live!

I used to think I was important you know,
And things weren’t right if I wasn’t running the show.

I felt pressure, pain, anger, and fear
Words of wisdom I was too blocked to hear.

What happened and what I’m like now
Is really a miracle, holy cow!

That I can love and think of you first
Is what I’m about, and my spiritual thirst.

I know in my heart I’m led the right way
Although I was tested when there was no pay.

Day-by-day, hour-by-hour
I’m blossoming – what a beautiful flower!

There is some wilt every now and then
But I appreciate even that from where I’ve been.

Hello? I say to the stranger I meet
Despite your foibles, I think you’re neat.

If I were the Creator, you in my hand I would hold
And because of your flaws, on you I would be sold!

Your turn will come to hold me, hooray!
And then you won’t notice my crooked toupee.
