Misfit

Reading Time: 2 minutes

A sense of belongingness keeps us rooted. Some people, though present physically in this world are absent mentally. They are the misfits, feels, Sailasree, in this verse, in Different Truths. 

I am a misfit in this crazy world,

I don’t know why?

I feel I don’t belong to this world,

But here I am and I don’t know why?

 

I am a trapped soul in a wrong frame,

Trying to live this burdened life with a smile,

But hell no…..the world is not game,

And wants me to bow down in shame,

 

I am a restrained pneuma who likes to be free,

Devoid of all these meaningless bondages,

But hell no…..the world is not game,

And treats me like a freaking maim,

 

I am a wandering psyche in pursuit of my harmony,

With situations mangling the essence of me,

But hell no… the world is not game,

And torments me like a forgotten flame,

 

I am a lonely spirit who just wants to be loved,

Beyond the passable realms of love,

But hell no…the world is not game,

 And shuns me like a forbidden name,

 

I am a lifeless entity still in existence,

Enduring the hiatus of this meaningless animation,

But hell no….the world is not game,

And gawks at me like a fatal dame,

 

Why do I feel the way I feel?

Is it because of the crazy world?

Or is it because of the crazy me?

I feel I don’t belong to this world,

But here I am and I don’t know why?

 

Am I the misfit who just wants to be happy?

Or is it the world which cannot see me happy,

Maybe I don’t belong to this world,

For the world is too crazy for a misfit like me.
