Odd One Out


My life is a mess,
I've done everything wrong,
on the urge of a moment
I sing the wrong song.

I sing what is sung
to a different tune,
when I sing the sun,
and they the moon.

I guess I'm just odd,
or is that unique,
as I always stand out,
outside of the clique.

The many are more
in a crowd or a throng,
and I am just me
singing my song

    The first stanza is very interesting, as everyone of us feel the same way at one point of our times, thinking how many of us have lived a perfect life, which means without making indecisive decisions! ! ! ! I Thank you for sharing your thought.. (Report) Reply

    You seem to be quite a character - I like that sometimes. Can identify with this poem, I'm uniquely just me, a mere poet. At times my life is a
    mess and I can't seem to get things right either. That's what they call life. Nice poem, thank you for sharing. RoseAnn (Report) Reply
