Atypical Persona


Get branded as an oddity
to edicts I don't conform

Mundane most practices
in routine I can't perform

Cosseted in nothingness
bonds me with innate core

Drifting in surreal abyss
not since explored before

Often get sneered upon
for choices past made

Some fueled by passion
few had ominous shade

It's about perceptions
for right deemed wrong

Most may or never learn
as who I were all along

What seen is an illusion
from reality far apart

I am sort of a paradigm
resolute in living my part

In my times of reflections
from all I stand removed

Some see me just vegetating
but light years I've moved

Poem of the Day

poet Christina Georgina Rossetti

Where sunless rivers weep
Their waves into the deep,
She sleeps a charmed sleep:
Awake her not.
Led by a single star,
She came from very far
