    A round peg surrounded by square holes,
    Fitting in each hole but never quite filling it.
    An almost match but never quite the same.
    Where do I fit in?

    Playing a drum in a string quartet,
    An instrument meant for a different song.
    I’ve been marching to a different beat all my life.
    How do I fit in?

    Painting with words and sculpting with yarn,
    Needles, hooks, and looms used to create my gifts.
    Following patterns does not make real talent.
    Why don’t I fit in?

    Waiting to hear magic words from those, I love,
    Thank you, I appreciate you, I love you.
    To hear those words I must say them first.
    When will I fit in?

    Weird is no longer my word, I am now unique,
    Normal will never be my claim in life.
    There’s no way they’ll ever understand me.
    I don’t want to fit in.

    Dear Gail,

    :wow: How true!!!! This was something I definitely could relate to on many, many levels. I came to the same conclusion----->Don't want to fit in. Very clever, beautifully written, and a clear message & lesson to be learned. I almost feel you wrote this for me, lol. Thank you for sharing, and I needed to read this poem today. When I feel like I should fit in, this poem I shall read, to keep me focused, and uplifted. Thank you again. Went into my favorites.

    Nonsense, PD! Gail has obviously written this one for ME! LOL!!!

    Gail; Truly an awesome write and one that many of us relate to. I love the conclusion of this poem! I cannot agree with your line about following patterns not making real talent. Just trying to read those @$%# patterns is beyond me and you need the skill to make and color coordinate those needle-works!

    Now, now!

    Ladies! Ladies! Ok, yo, you broads stop that! lol. That was written for ME!
    I've been so low lately, I needed a ladder to look up at a snakes belly. Ready to quit everything (not life) pity party.

    I've been sick and depressed (very, very bad combination) and had been sick for weeks so you can imagine (example: I stopped using the computer, crafts or reading. Just sat there and watched TV or slept.:bed:

    Anyway, it's good to be close to the old Gail.
