Individuality for dVerse Poets


What you want for me to be
subtracts from “I’ to add to “we,”
and yet it does not set me free,
but traps me in normality.

You will not hear me make a plea
for rules of set society.
I simply choose to take the knee
and insist on being me.

About lifelessons

My blog, which started out to be about overcoming grief, quickly grew into a blog about celebrating life. I post daily: poems, photographs, essays or stories. I've lived in countries all around the globe but have finally come to rest in Mexico, where I've lived since 2001. My books may be found on Amazon in Kindle and print format, my art in local Ajijic galleries. Hope to see you at my blog.
