I am a little eccentric it has to be said and it is when I really stand in my quirkiness that I connect with people the most. After all, having the courage to own what makes us different can liberate others to do the same and who needs vanilla anyway?!?
Hot off the press… I have just recorded this poem and wanted to also share the link here. Feedback gratefully received! :
Brandish your Outlandish
It’s our quirks that make folk smirk
Our kinks can be endearing
In zaniness our essence lurks
Of oddity no fearing
Flamboyant streaks bring smiles to cheeks
Allow us to feel freer
So let your offbeat colours leak
Permission will appear
Don’t wait upon the window sill
Dilute yourself to please them
Don’t act the part to fit the bill
Your foibles we all need them!
So curl your locks, wear your bright socks
Show up and don’t be lazy!
For in a box no woman rocks
And we all need your crazy!
