Oh to fit in and be like the rest

A bowtie smile and looking your best

You continued to deceive

We no longer believe

You labeled yourself as an unwanted guest

    Intriguing poetry Eugenia. Who really is the odd one out?

      Thank you and I like your response. It is judgemental, perhaps?

        It was not meant to be Eugenia. The point I was trying to make is that sometimes when someone stands out from the crowd, it is the crowd who may appear to be different or alienated, if you know what I mean?

    We all know peeps like this and they do make their own labels whether they think so or not. Thanks for sharing your thoughts.

    Well written. Deception does wear out after some time no matter how well dressed it is.
