i wrote myself an email a year ago today.
‘do you think that you can find yourself a better way?’
bright and happy, hoping a connection would be made
all that time has passed and no progress i’m afraid.
are connections really all that hard to form,
or am i just that far outside the norm?
outliers are a fact of life,
a source of much internal strife.
for those who feel ostracized
norm is a thing much prized.
bright and happy, i accept who i am today
maybe that IS the better way.
