Normal Poem

It’s been a long time, a little over a year, since I’ve been playing along with the Poetic Asides Wednesday prompts. It has been always one thing or another that would stop me. Now, I quite accidentally managed to check in on the website and saw the prompt: #239, October 2nd, and here I go:

Normal Poem

I was asked to be myself
Really hard.
It’s a task,
I considered for a while,
for years, in fact.

What would define me?
Or, what could?

Once I asked to be like everybody,
but gradually, I came to realise
That there is no ‘everybody’
that will put the boundaries of normal
into my mind frame.

Normal poem – more of Nov PAD, Day 8

Day 8 called for “normal” poem as well. Here is the “paranormal” one. And below is the new poem:


The chill outside the window
is well-sealed-off.
Mastery of woodwork.
