Unwanted One

One much given
to introspective self absorption,
little inclined to action,
I record this plaintive piece.....
The years go by and, though I age,
I am still the lone, unwanted one.
Early it was I learned
to embrace pain, or to avoid it.....
never to invite, through any expectation,
added disappointment.....
always penning solitary lines,
mere mental meanderings.....
My drab world,
all dry sand and clouded sun,
sparsely populated,
was a nearly vacant, arid desert.
All my laurels for achievements
I, and others, immediately devalued.
Nothing I did could
be worthy of a lauding.....
no good could come from
an unwanted one,
one outside the pale.....
not from such a joyless one.

The years go by, and still,
I am I.....
the lone, unwanted one.

    Well, I can empathize with this one. I think the reason we feel this way is due to the reality that not even those individuals in our own families have the capacity to comprehend the complexity of our minds or feelings. I like this poem. It makes me feel as though at least there is someone in the world who has been made to feel as I do.

    Your poem is good, but sad. There is always someone that wants us, because to him we are special - that is JESUS. Lucilla
