To the rejected, outcast poet

If you're weird, a black sheep, a natural outsider,
If you fish in a solitary pond.
If you come from the lonely, the lost and forgotten,
If you're eccentric, living beyond

The social etiquette of populist mantra,
To say and do what others demand?
Then you and I are friends in our gorgeous sublime,
To face the world, together, hand in hand.

Well said Lewis you have expressed how many of us poets feel. When I tell people I write poetry they look at me like I have two heads. It seems we fish in the same pond my friend.
