Amita Sarjit Ahluwalia writes


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
