What is the point in life?

What is the point in life when

I am continuously smashed between

the inside of a book?

At first I am set aside,

to rest,

until yet again

I am picked back up

to be firmly placed between the two pages

with maximum impact following close behind.

The pages close together,

furthermore crushing me.

Where is the humanity?!

O how rough and degrading it is

for a poor little bookmark like me.
