Square Peg

Worked hard all my life to make the
Square peg that is me fit
The round hole of my life.
Jammed and squeezed me into a
Space that is too small, hacked off
Rough edges to make myself fit.
It's time; time to make the hole
Bigger, expand the life to fit
Each and every part of me.
Reclaim those rough edges. Feel
And know the sharpness of my angles. Make a life fit for this square peg.


  1. A powerful poem. Thank you for sharing it. Here's to reclaiming the rough edges and creating a life that fits us :)
