About being different

Some of us are outliers
We hear the voices around us
Telling stories of life
And those tales do not match
The world we live in

There is a kind of silence
A solitude in difference
As speaking our abnormal
Is shocking to be heard
Even when to us
Its comfortably familiar

Conforming doesnt comfort
It chafes againt our unique
We stand to one side
Just outside the crowd
Looking for another deviant
To bond with

Not all of us are normal
But all of us have value
A place within this world
Even if only to define
The norm of all the rest.
