421 – Mismatch

Sounds daring and romantic…
It hardly ever is.

The round peg
In a land of square holes
Is always hammered
To fit.

The rebel
Is seldom considered a hero,
But rather an itch
That must be scratched.

No use in trying to blend in,
It’s a lost cause.

Despite the pain
You just can’t deny
Your nature.
