Uncommon Friend

some say you
don’t belong
don’t fit in
a nonconformist –

trouble
and so they
don’t
give you a chance

but you are bright and
sparkling
adding zing to my
dull life

zest to my ordinary days
balance to my humble story

and I am better for
knowing you

50s nonconformist

I didn’t know it but
she was ahead of her time
the other mothers
baked and cleaned
she gave her time
to help the poor
the other mothers
played cards and sewed
she read books and played piano
My mother didn’t
conform to her peers
She taught me well

Day 8 in the Garden is all about those women who influenced the world with their courage and bravery, the suffragettes, or the women who influenced us.
