Why should I run away

From things that can

Never outrun me anyway?

It will neither make

It a race, nor will it

Make me a runner.

I would rather stay stuck

In a pavilion

With my non-athletic heart

Which can put to shame

A marathon drummer!

  1. Oh, yes, that feeling of being the proverbial square peg in a round-hole world…that’s me. Although I was athletic, I still never fit in anywhere. I think the word “awkward” has my photo by it in the dictionary. This resonates. I think, however, a lot of us awkward folk fit in here in the WordPress community, and I’m glad for that. Another stellar piece of writing, Aaysid! 🙂
