A Part of the Crowd

A Part of the Crowd

part of the crowd
that's what everyone wants to be
just to belong
it's very plain to see

the people trying hard
to be the center squeeze
of all the boys who play the game
of all the girls hard to please

first you're very quiet 
to get a read on things
then politely you make a comment
to become a part of things

everybody's laughing
enjoying their part in the group
it takes a while to notice
that you are not in the loup

no matter how hard you try
your voice is never heard
your presence never felt
your acceptance never occured

they totally ignore you
to the group you don't exist
in fact when you take your leave
you are probably not even missed

so don't waste your time
you never be happy here
save yourself the pain of rejection
they have made it perfectly clear..

My dear Mandi, I hear your voice very loud and clear. I really liked this poem. In my younger days, I experienced this also.

Some people get a minute, others an hour ... we're all players on a stage at one point or another. We find our way, making it our own, those that want to walk with us , we call friends ... we walk together or take turns leading or following without having to worry about hurting feelings, we are all doing what we want. A great little write, maybe some will notice how they treated others after reading this piece. Be well k



as always, I am honored that you even read my work thank you



Keep it up my friend, someone will always read your work, weather or not they leave a comment. I most often comment, be well k

wow...this si truly amazing..that is how i feel sometimes so i have learned to ignore it

To have great poets there must be great audiences too.
