Weird

Weird

A Poem by Dana Ferguson

Does he think I'm weird,
or does she,
or that child,
or that person over there?
Do my quirks make them squirm?
Me is me,
I'm not sure how to speak.
But I promise there's a part of me,
you'd like to keep.
I'm too far gone,
no more change.
My heart was broken often,
now it's you who has to say.

We live with so many labels attached over which we had no hand in the choice... but its sooo hard waiting for another to see who you are.

A touching 'you' with 'weirdness'.....Spectacular thought.....Well done dear....

Nicely captured you-ness. If we study people closely enough, we will find weirdness in all. Some people may think that ham, cheese and jam sandwiches make me weird, while posh restaurants sell the same the same thing for thirty times the cost. Either weirdness is everywhere or it doesn't exist at all. It is only one persons perspective.
Personally, it is the quirks I find the most interesting in people. Why one person does this or sees thing from their point of view is what makes us unique.
You are absolutely right, you can only change so much before realising that you are being you and other people should look closer and see beyond what they see in you.
Beautifully written, thought provoking words.

Yes, I am indeed weird. Aren't we all in some way or another? :)

Possibly. I think a better word would be unique. Weird is good though.
