What is normal?
Fitting in and dressing formal?
Blending in and becoming the crowd?
Following and doing what’s allowed?

I’ve never understood
Why normal is “good”
I think life is more than passing by
It’s an adventure, a time to fly

Is standing out unique?
Or simply antique?
Is being who you truly are
Deeply fulfilling or just bizarre?

Why shrink and hide?
Why comply and abide?
You have a soul to live
A purpose to give

Even though in every conversation
My “differences” become the fixation
I smile, grateful for being me
In this authenticity, I am free

    Just loved every bit of it my sister!!! What an excellent piece this was, just…🤩😍🙌. Neither have I understood why normal is “good”, and the last two lines “I smile, grateful for being me
    In this authenticity, I am free” …. these lines were diamonds of this ornament, strong and shiny✨. This world is busy passing comments and correcting the course of others, with prejudices over their thoughts and ideas. The one who falls to this fails and the on who stands above this with a strong belief in his inner calling is the victor!!! Thank you sister😇🤗

    Wow Grace.. A gem of a poem my friend, the lines below are phenomenal. I love the puzzle art work behind the poem and how that singular piece is free and liberated of the puzzle.

    “Even though in every conversation
    My “differences” become the fixation
    I smile, grateful for being me”

    A beautiful flow that expounds on the limitless and unbound souls we all are. The names and forms we asóciate with beingness are merely illusions created through socialization. These illusions do create a feeling of limitation when we identify as such, however, as your beautiful poem showcases, we can be free of these hallucinations by stepping into our authentic selves. A beautiful, beautiful poem, my dearest Ace. Much love. ❤️🥰

  15. Amazing message, my dear friend! Yes, we must strive to be ourselves, to show, to highlight, to express our differences. To celebrate our uniqueness! There is no point existing in cookie-cutter mode being like everyone else when we were all born different and wondrous in our own ways. ❤ Keep being you and writing amazing pieces, Ace. ❤
