Outcast

I discovered
 a hidden joy,
even power,
in being an outcast,
a so-called heretic
from my institutionalized religion.

We should all have ways
in which we feel that we stand outside
the circles of religious power.

Moving out
beyond institutionalized religion’s do’s and don’ts
can be they key to knowledge and experiences
that are not available in the inner circle.

When I stopped trying so hard to fit in,
I discovered new horizons,
freedom,
and the power
to grow.
