Cast Aside

Lost in an ocean of misery
Travelers, dark and dreary
Friends, who were friends no more-
With only sailors,
Sailing in the same boat.
Of need and usefulness,
That was of use no more;
Cast aside and forgotten,
A cheap shell, washed ashore.
Told to get lost and never come back-
Of diminished importance, and courtesies that lack
You are a nobody, and nobody cares.
No glitter, no sparkle says no gold in there.

P.S. In general, people amaze me. But their treatment of others (and their friends) flabbergast me. Sometimes in a good way and sometimes, in not-so-good ways. This is one of those latter times, when realization of the presence (if not the reason) of such behavior baffled me… And as always it makes me wonder, would they do what they do if they knew, or understood, what is it they are actually doing? My faith in humankind, says no, they wouldn’t. But my cynicism just smirks… Well, it is a question for another day. Keep reading (and trying to decipher) poetry. ~Love, G.

    when you don't understand something, you ridicule it, laugh at it, mock it. that's how people work.

    see point is, you think what they are doing is wrong because you have say a broader perspective than they have. maybe they just cant see it?

    and if they cant, they can only do so much. so whos wrong for judging? 🙂

    accept it as it is. always. thats how u can start to change it.

    Raj… Acceptance is a big step forward indeed… I don't know how you understood what I tried to say, but I am happy you did… And you are right, you just have to let it go and know that your perspective may be just that, a perspective that's yours and yours alone.

    Its sad that people dont understand they hurt other people. We have a mind of our own and thats what makes us different from animals and people like this change the whole meaning of being a human. Its ego anger jealousy that kills people. If people learn to control this world would b a much better place to live
