That Feeling

That feeling of neglect

That awful suspicion

That you are alone

Isolated on this planet

Full of human beings

All busy with their lives

While you alone are purposeless

Weak , undecided , lost

Utterly without use or meaning

That feeling

That you should exist no more

That you should never have come into being

That feeling , perhaps ,

Is the saddest feeling in the world

When you feel rejected

Not by a partner or a friend

Or a few associates or loved ones alone

But by the Universe

God loves you ?

Go tell that story to a lollipop sucking toddler

Not to a comprehending adult

or an old cynic

Nobody cares

Nothing really matters

Accept that : then you have a fair chance

Of staying alive

With gritted teeth

or resigned indifference

( Amita Sarjit Ahluwalia )
