The Life Intended

With poise our hearts are filled with peace

With every breath all pain does cease

With eyelids shut we see much more

With every bite we savour all

With every step we leave the chains

With every turn our lenses change

With each new dawn our minds are cleansed

Is this the life our world intends?

Miss Labelled

“Odd” – because I stand out from the crowd

“Weird” – because my tastes are not like yours

“Dysfunctional” – because my emotions cloud all else (at times)

“Fussy” – because I choose silence over chatter

“Stupid” – because it takes time to process your speech

“Lazy” – because reading stories is effortful

“Unfriendly” – because fake smiles are lost on me

“Unsociable” – because my own space is sacrosanct

Are these the labels you use to judge?

To deride, to define, to undermine?

Is there another way to see?

And challenge the things you think you see?
