She served up
A slice of life…
Heavy on
Why did I let it
Become a habit?

Drop a quarter in
The Wayback Machine…
Maybe the answer
Will be revealed…
Or ask Madame Zelda…
Maybe she knows,
Or maybe not…

Why do people
Punish themselves
And all around them,
Trying to live lives
So stereotypical
They fit none?
Life has never been
One size fits all…

I have to be me…
And you are none other
Than you…as we often say,
The same, but different…
Isn’t that the point?
We’re all human,
But look at us…
We are all so different…

Some think that’s a bad thing…
I say, “Vive la différence!”

    Really well said Robert! And i very much agree, we are all the same yet different and we should celebrate our differences😊

      And yet, our culture frowns upon it. Go figure. How can we revere individuality at the same time we separate and categorize and label? Thanks again, Suzanne. 😉
