A Strange Bird

I have always felt different as compared to others. However, I am beautiful just the way I am. Green and going in a different direction from the rest.

I have always felt like a strange bird in life. As a teenager, my girlfriends giggled about boys as I made appointments with my rabbi to discuss existentialism. As an adult in mid-life, my friends chose marriage while marriage made me resonate with the Indira Gandhi quote, “I have felt like a bird born in too small a cage.” Now, I try to be proud of who I am, even if I am green when everyone else is red, even if my feet are breaking out of my “too small cage,” even if I have reached a turning point and I am going in a different direction from the flock.
