The Anomaly


I’ve tried to fit in all my life 

I’ve tried to follow the common path 

I’ve tried to think like the crowd 

My oh my, I’ve failed every time 

================

I’ve tried to be politically correct 

I’ve tried to be socially appropriate

I’ve tried to live like others

My oh my, I’ve failed every time 

================

I have strong opinions

I have diverse perspectives 

I have tonnes of question 

I have deep silences

================

I feel every rejection

I sense people’s feelings

I see the struggle to align

I know the battle

================

I have no qualms speaking my truth

I have no challenge apologizing

I have no problem admitting I don’t know 

I’m learning to ask for help

================

I walk away and don’t look back

I weigh my words but don’t remain silent

I judge your actions and responses to me

I preserve my heart 

================

Everyone has a fair chance

To speak their truth

To challenge my position

To show their true self 

To understand my heart 

================

Everyone has a fair chance

To teach me something new

To chart a new path

To change their corner of the world

================
