Adrift In a Covenless World

by michaelcahill

An outsider


if I don't fit in
where I feel I
fit in
then how will I fit
what I wear won't be
what they wear
my hat
what will they think
of that?
do they even don
one upon?
once I could fly
but now
no sky beckons
and I fear
the eyes will ground me
and confound
my every dream
my life lived was my dream
but they treated me
like a witch
and cast me out
what will be
my stake
when I am
where I arrive?
