The glass is half full

Why do you compare yourself to me? 
Yes we are made the same way, 
but we are both different.
I am a long stem wine glass,
She has a short stem,
He’s thinner, 
She’s wider,
And yes you have no stem at all.
But we all have our purpose.

You can’t compare your journey 
to me, him, or her.
A daisy might wish to be as tall as a sunflower,
But forgets that it brings joy and beauty regardless. 
Roses complain about their thorns, 
But forgets that the thorns are 
Thankful to have them.

Would you compare the moon to the sun,
Even though the moon shines at night 
and the sun at daylight?
Think about the things you can do, 
And worry less about what others do
Because we are all different.
