I’m an oddball
Happy to be
Perky and listening
To others as
They talk of their lives
I don’t care about what
Some people consider notable
All people’s stories are notable
Interesting and absorbing
Lives so different
I want to hear about
People share
Life stories
Without any preamble
And I listen 
Oddball that I am

  1. Listening is very important. I think there is a saying that "It is better to be silent and be thought stupid than to open my mouth and prove it!"

  2. And what a beautiful 'oddball' you are - yes you always have time for people's stories..and well, people - thank you

  3. One learns more by listening as there is the element of added info from others. Good being an 'oddball' here Sheilagh!
