There is No Normal (a poem by Richard B.)

used to think

for the longest time

was taught

knee high

to a grasshopper

on a parent’s lap

reinforced in school

on TV, in church

and the big screen

heard it again,

and again,

and again…

about "normal"

don’t want

that constraint

don’t need


won’t be

not me

let’s free


And while we’re at it

let’s see

if free

can be

not just me

can it be?

all of us

all of life

all the bros

and sisters too

in the sea

in the air

on the land

and in the earth

the earth itself

and the air water and mineral

all of the stardust.

There is no normal

There is life

There is no normal

no need for strife

There is no normal.
