I am told 
I must conform
become a part 
of this crowded norm.
The way I carry myself,
my hair,
what I wear,
must all exist to fit in.
But I stand alone,
I don't care 
if they don't love me!
The only one I want to be
is what God claims for me.
Must I stand tall in stilettos,
and fit into a slight size 3
just so my God accepts me?
I must be thankful 
every day that I wake,
because my God
is not like anyone here,
because he doesn't care
on how I conform,
or transform,
to the physical norms.
All God wants
is a heart that is true,
tries to bloom,
and he'll move me on,
no matter what 
the rest of the world 
thinks it can make me do.

    I so enjoyed reading your poem today, Live, Live, Live and be whom you are, as people get older people change and change is good but a person has to be happy in their own skin, and yes God does love you for whom you are, Be Strong, peace debra

    Well said, Betty. When you get my age - 83 - there is a sort of blessing. One no longer cares what the hell the Jones' think. Congrats on the selection. daver
