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.
