Out of Place


feel I don’t belong sometimes

and sometimes at night I’ll reflect and cry

Other times I feel connected

and it happens often when I don’t try

It’s important to me

I am not going to fixate on why

there’s something missing

from me being my “I”

It’s that sense of belonging

and so I go, continuing to try.

    1. I wonder about that too. I do crave a sense of belonging yet at the same time, I quite simply need time to myself. Like many things in life, I guess it’s about understanding and then finding that balance. Love, Harlon


  1. Being mostly an introvert by nature, I wonder if that is a component of feeling like we don’t belong sometimes. It’s interesting that feeling connected happens often when you don’t try. I’ve had that experience, too. I think it has something to do with not caring quite so much and being able to relax. Hugs to you, my friend.

    1. Thank you JoAnna, it’s cool that you should close on the power of being able to relax. Quite often my postings turn into learning experiences for myself and what I was feeling after this post, and in fact a lot lately in my life as I explore change, it just to relax. I can do this, don’t overthink it because I can do most of this on auto-pilot. Relaxing and perhaps some confidence – a nice combo platter. Hugs, Harlon
