being something else

Not entirely left or right, this or that.

Confused somewhat

of damaged flesh,

staying now with the old ones

my heart has been around.

I stand, a stranger at the edge of the door.

Wondering who can understand

My little estate is a comfort

I look at the cold earth;

I look at those who come before me ,

 I am a scion, a chip off the old block

Not one or the other

Contains me.

I am something on the outside of him and her,

But I am them both.
