Odd One Out?

Someone, in a group with whom I share, asked, “Anyone else want to tackle why they feel like the odd one out sometimes?”  The thing that comes to mind, immediately, for me is, “As for being the odd one out- I’ve always been odd in the heterosexual world because I’m openly gay, and always one out in the gay community because, so often, in certain circles, I’m just not gay enough. I’ve never done popular trends just because.”

I’ve been accused of being contrary just for contrariness’ sake; I hope that’s not true, but does one ever really, honestly, know?

I never know what to say about myself. I let what I write try to speak as to who I am. I can only add, here, that I am 72, live in a nursing home, am twenty years a cancer survivor, and identify as a gay male. I intend to use this blog as storage for poems? written over the long years (and still being written). This does not preclude other uses.
