Odd and Forget

I walk crooked so I have found
My epiphany was this is the truth in me
I tried walking a rhythm that was not mine
That was lie in me number one
The second lie has been I am not seen
I have felt for so long invisible in this life
And thought I am forgotten too quickly if quiet
The reflection of me I thought faded in others
I felt sorted and catalogued ‘Odd and Forget’
My how things change when love is on the scene
The nature of love grows flowers of opportunity
I began to see the outline of a free visible me
I heard and believed in your words that were said
I am now purging the lies that have filled my head
Those in the world that find me from another planet
If they find me unpalatable I care not for that lot
I do walk crooked with a twist and a curious leap
Along a road I thought once was cobbled in defeat
This is my road I see now dances with imagination
The road braid of myself that explores and rejoices
Who cares my walk is off kilter and bent
This is the road that offers me exquisite choices
I do not care to walk so straight anyway
I care not to balance on a tightrope of pretend
Convention is over rated and not my friend
I have tried and tried and lied and lied
I am a little bent and I walk a crooked mile
Now I declare this out loud it brings my smiles
If you walk around the shadow of whom you are
You may think the shadow is the real you
I am not a clone or a robot of the majority
So walk a crooked mile with me if this be you
I will be your truest and real friend
I have no programming in me to pretend
