I'm Odd

Image Source: Google

I am proud of my brown skin
I don't care if I look slim or broad
I love myself the way I am
Yeah, probably that's why I'm odd

I believe in myself the most
Only after that, comes God
I don't have to pray to get things
Yeah, probably that's why I'm odd

I am in no way lesser than a man
I do not have to worship him as lord
I want no special reservations for me
Yeah, probably that's why I'm odd

I believe in speaking my mind out
My words might strike harder than a rod
I find no point in sugar coating them
Yeah, probably that's why I'm odd

I do not need too many people
I am very happy with my own little squad
I do not find the need to please people
Yeah, probably that's why I'm odd

I am protective about the people I love
Mess with me and you get clawed
I am my own power and strength
Yeah, probably that's why I'm odd

I do what ever I want to do
For societal norms I give no nod
My life my way, is my mantra
Yeah, probably that's why I'm odd

  5. Who is not odd? Most people wear a mask, I think and over time forget the difference between the mask and reality.
    It is the acceptance of 'being odd' that makes one special.
