This website has been a welcome discovery. Not because I will ever move to a foreign land in search of a woman, but because many of the articles here have validated feelings I have had for a very long time. The problem has always been that I have felt I was the only person having this problem with connecting, and all the obstacles I have encountered were of my own making. Now I see that others feel as isolated as myself. I want to share something with all of you. I write a little. It is an outlet for me. A few weeks ago, before I knew about this website, I wrote a piece that sums up a lot of what I have read on this site. I find it quite interesting because what I wrote in a poetic form below seems to match the feeling of many people who have written articles, and was written prior to me having any knowledge of them.
WORLD OF REJECTION
Traveling a road paved with sorrow.
No end in sight, not today or tomorrow.
Another poor child born into a world of rejection.
Without any protection, bombarded from every direction.
By all of the sour looks and frowns.
Of guarded and defensive people in cities and towns.
Whose very look seems to say don't stop here, go away.
It's been nice seeing you, have a nice day.
Good luck and good bye, too bad you can't stay.
So I keep traveling this road paved with sorrow.
With no end in sight, not today or tomorrow.
Don't know if I am headed north, south, east, or west.
Don't know whether living or dying would be best.
I'm just a strange man, in a strange land.
A lonely heart making a last stand.
A frightened puppy shivering and cold.
A weary traveler tired and old.
A broken soul crying I've had enough.
A coward who gives up when the going gets tough.
A fool who believes every lie he is told.
A weakling who is meek when he should be bold.
A thief who takes when he should give away.
A ungracious guest who leaves when he ought to stay.
A desperate man who prays to God above.
I'm sorry I don't do better lord, I just want to be loved.
