In a world of conformity,
I am an anomaly.
I am the square peg,
That doesn't fit the round hole.
When others say clearly, Yes !, or, No !,
I think why not, or just maybe.
When I am shown their reality,
I search for other possibilities.
They say I do not speak like a Heathen,
That I do not dress, or fit the part.
They condemn my Pagan ways as blasphemy,
And at times describe me as a heretic.
I smile as I look them in the eyes,
For it is not their approval that I seek.
I simply do what the Gods ask of me,
And stand proudly alone in Their light !
