Might Be [REVISED]


When I explained why I could not follow my colleagues’
conversation you pointed out they were right and I was
wrong; it made me glad you’re as normal as they - and
sad I wasn’t like you or them, but so it is, precisely

you because you were normal - and thus it ground me
to earth - frequently I’ve said I could never survive with
someone like me. Regrettably you don’t think my

Weirdness brings much to you & yours - another thing
I have to accept, plus being outsider to normals who
routinely take charge of everything – oh well, maybe
in heaven* there might be a place for me

[*heaven = any other place but this earth]
