Out of Place

Out of Place
by Minna Von Walden

Help me, I am not feeling myself right now. Feeling sort of out of place at the moment. As if I don’t belong here in this place, in my life. Like I’ve walked into the life of someone else and everyone just stares and they whisper among themselves. Questioning why I think I’m allowed to participate. Feeling that I don’t fit in this moment. It all feels awkward, foreign, like I’ve been dropped in the middle of a movie scene and I don’t know my lines or even what the movie is about. I just don’t fit. Help me to conform myself, to learn my lines, to fit in, to be like those who whisper their questions. Or, just let me be, leave me as I am and let their whispers fade as I hold onto my own identity. Forget why I cared that I didn’t fit in and didn’t belong. Relax and be ok with not belonging, waiting and knowing that if not here, somewhere, somewhere I am the missing piece of a beautiful puzzle and I just got dropped into the wrong puzzle box. Help me fit, so I don’t feel so out of place.
