Quirky is Overrated – Written Monday 8th December 2014 (Aged 39)

Quirky is Overrated

just think of others
you are not the only one
we are not different
we are all getting older
whatever that actually means
you know,
quirky is overrated
ask a quirky person
ask them,
and they will talk of the pain –
of being separated
being different
when you are not
it is true, it is overrated

talk to the loneliness people
and know how –
they want to be liberated
just remember
it is the schooling
it is the parents
it is our lives
it is our experiences
our misadventure and play
we watch –
wrapped up in paper
a meaningful hug
a way forward which is enough
just think of others
