The Outlier

Disillusioned

Once part of the group —
member, confidante, friend —
sharing, celebrating, comforting —
until what I needed
conflicted with
what they wanted.

Now, an outlier —
a displaced loner,
choosing well over ill,
choosing me over them,
solitary and solo,
enjoying the silence.

I was always a writer but lived in a bookkeeper’s body before I found Medium and broke free — well, almost. Working to work less and write more.
