Eclecticism: A Poem

This is why I value being eclectic

By Serena Published about a year ago 1 min read

Eclectic: ec·lec·tic/əˈklektik/. adjective. deriving ideas, style, or taste from a broad and diverse range of sources.

Here is why I value being eclectic

Sticking to just one value would be quite hectic

Part of why I value this is because I am a skeptic,

If you just followed one rule your whole life things wouldn’t turn out as expected!

I like to let different things decide my action

I believe that my emotions play into it a fraction

Being eclectic means I balance all these things to create the right reaction

Being well rounded is what I aspire to be

I wouldn’t label myself one way or another because that excludes creativity

Choosing one way to live is too limiting for me

I am made up of many beliefs and values that I have collected

So reflecting upon some values I’ve selected,

With friends and family, I want to feel connected and go about my life in hopes to be respected

I also value philosophy, music, spirituality, and art

To always be in touch with my emotions and my heart

But if I feel that I am losing touch or beginning to fall apart…

Because I value eclecticism, I can always change, rearrange, and restart.
