Do you march to the beat of your own drum?

There was a time, now long ago

when I was teased and taunted.

The reason why I did not know,

my childhood days were haunted.


I watched and listened, tried to learn

from those who thought me ‘different’.

I tried to fit in, be like them,

yet they remained insistent.


I searched for clues to what they meant

and came to some conclusions.

My point of view was slightly bent,

my head, full of illusions.


My sense of humour seemed so odd

to mainstream way of thinking.

My hope of ever fitting in

as each year passed, was sinking.


And then at last, I found a few

who marched to their own drum beat.

Thinking, feeling just like me,

they tapped in time with my feet.


That’s when I learned to love myself,

and unafraid to show it.

I ‘d found the others, just like me ….

the writers, dreamers, poets.
