To Be Uncool

A child – once solitary - lived inside herself and always dreamed. She wished for popularity. This would be happiness – at least for her it seemed. Popularity never came, but in her thirteenth year, she noticed others like herself - girls seeking more. Like her, they were sincere. She sought them out – those other girls unwanted by the cliques at school. She and they were interesting. Fun were they! It mattered not to be “uncool!” United, they made room for other girls. Enjoying each other, a common motto was their creed: “One for all and all for one,” Interconnectedness was true friendship indeed. Dec. 4, 2022 For Unseeking Seeker's Journey Without Movement Poetry Contest

I am trying to wrap my head around this one. Well, at least in the way of how it relates to topic of Journey Without Movement. It took me reading it slow to understand the girl you are talking about was me, only like at age 19-24age range. Cheers!

What I was thinking about writing was about the caption of a ship that is inside a bottle on someone's living room mantle.

I could not conceive of what that contest was actually about. Obviously the sponsor realized that too, since I got N/A. haha

Your perspective on the topic is quite interesting, Andrea. Absolutely, the sense of belonging and continuity fostered by this interdependence is both attractive and enduring.

High school life is enormously overrated, AD. 4 years in semi-shadows, fifty years bathed in illumination. Nice piece. Good luck. ~;o)
