A poetry about what happens when you are separated from a group where you are living. After all pains you are said to be NOTHING. But in response you say that there is SOMETHING!!!
Enjoy reading :-)

P.S. I'd like to hear your comments.

Alienation

Harry Little

Broken, shattered, dismissed, neglected.

I’m the man totally rejected.

 

For at times, I’m seen absurd.

Yet, I think, I’m not nerd.

With passions I’m alive

to serve my best in disguise.

For they don’t allow me

to be what I wanna be.

 

A society hopeless of me.

My life-card seems off.

And a pistol donned at me

is what I call a grief now.

Enmity is extreme.

Their hate is no more esteem.

 

I’m a human like you

So why not feel pain of me?

 

Skills in me are not seen.

Talents in me not admired.

A chance also can’t I hire.

Awful to be in this fire.

 

They say: “You are NOTHING!”

I so reply: “If I exist, then there’s SOMETHING”

It's not easy when you feel marginalized just for following your own heart and mind.
I like the defiant tone at the end - so true, too.

Yes, it's difficult. But when you speak up, you try creating an opportunity which is worth it. History is obvious about this. Thanks for sharing your thought. :-)

Damn straight you are something. You are a poet -- read and admired by fellow poets around the world. You are a creator of thoughts, words and deeds, and that is more than just something - that is a unique set of specialness that is you alone. If you haven't heard it before, I'm going to give you one of my favorite quotes that I've kept close most of my life. It's by a gal named Eleanor Roosevelt, and it goes like this: "Nobody can make you feel inferior without your consent." Simple and profound. Think about it, friend. P.S. Yours was a good and honest-from-the-heart poem.
