What makes a person weird?

It’s pretty straightforward actually. A person is considered weird when they are inept at wearing the mask.

You know what I mean. The mask of conformity. The mask that doesn’t make waves and the mask that does what it’s told.

It’s the mask that pretends everything is okay when it isn’t so no one else is inconvenienced by their problems.

Weird is the person that challenges the status quo simply by how they see the world and make their way through it.

Who walks to the rhythm no one else can hear. Who questions the lockstep manner in which everyone else lives their lives.

Wierd is the person who is gifted to society to awaken them from the sea of monotony they swim in.

Weird is the seed that launches the root, that feeds the tree of an innovative spirit. One that moves society forward because it asks the simple question, “What if we didn’t do things the way they’ve always been done?”

When is the last time you were weird, tell me about it?
