I'm an odd problem
And all the answers
in the back of my book
Are evens

Your terrible teachers
Are not an excuse
For giving up
Before reading the chapter

Was I too hard?
Not worth a try?
I found some peace
In ending our tie

I'll always be odd
And you will never
Be even

Your poem reminds me that at some point in childhood there is a resolve to find the answers to things that are bothering us.

Later in life, searching for the answers gets kind of exhausting. That's when it begins to become a little clearer that the searching can hide a deeper pain and emptiness.

Being even can be scary. As safe it may seem, a perfectly ordered existence is somehow mystifying in its regularity.

Perhaps within our oddness is our true self, hungering for recognition by an even world, yet finding peace in living without it.

Lose the drama; life is a poem.
