Odd One Out - Poem by K.C. Ford

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

    My dear friend, life is a show
    In life each one of us is a beau
    Earth revolves around its axis and the sun
    Strange interactions make life a real fun

    If we all were the same
    Fitted in the same frame
    Without fame and blame
    Life would be a dull game

    Music also has eight notes
    Their unique pitching ragas float
    Diverse instruments a symphony create
    Bass and treble are life's musical traits

    No one is ever out of tune
    Diversity is life's blessed boon (Report) Reply

    Every man must sing his own song
    Lest his sands run out too soon
    And when time keeper hits the gong
    We should go smiling at the moon.........

    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
