The Secret

17 Jul

The heat so oppressive

Worse inside

I forgot how I did not fit in

I use to ache to belong

Now I see the divide

I revel in it

I rejoice in it

I smile so secretly

At the joy I have found

Tapped into a reserve

They will never know

My tears are about release now

Not sadness or pain

I look in the mirror

And just smile

    Oh yes! It’s all about originality! And then, whether you fit in or not, after a while, becomes secondary !
    An excellent and insightful poem!

    So true…it’s about reaching a point in your life where you no longer CARE if you fit in. Maybe that’s as evolved as I’ll ever get, but it’s something. Thank you for your comments and compliments!
