Michelle

I am strange

different from what is expected

In science

I am like an atom

that possess an odd number of electrons

In Mathematics I am a number

not even divisible by two

I always have one leftover as a remainder

when divided by two

They call me weird because I am different

peculiar.

queer.

bizarre.

unusual.

I smile

I laugh

I even smirk at times

I don’t care how they call me

For as long as you love the weirdness in me

And your love makes Michelle, special and unique
