A bit of a rant poem, I wrote it when I was angry with the world, I felt I was basically being ignored by everyone, and that people assumed too much about me when they hardly knew me.


Is my existentiality

a reality

or is it just a fantasy

of my mentality

I can’t grip the fractality

of my emotionality

Is this but insanity

or me seeking validity

for the fragility

of my personality


Hope you enjoy, please feel free to comment.

  1. Very nice, I love how well it rhymes. Kind of a sing-song sort of poem.

  2. I enjoyed it tremendously, I must say. I read this somewhere before – all of us seek to be understood and validated. It’s this human nature in each of us – perhaps as a social animal – we need to feel that we are accepted.
    We just need to constantly remind ourselves that we are different individuals and not everyone will understand us but as long as we know what we are doing, I think we are doing fine 🙂

    I have been following most of your posts(as much as possible) and I do admire your flow of poetry and how it comes fluidly. You are talented in your own way – believe in yourself and the dots will connect eventually.

    • Thank you for your kind words and good advice. I know that being human sadly makes me partially a social creature, hence the “Lonely” in my name. I know well enough that I am different. Having people remind me on a fairly regular basis (both positively and negatively) helps keep that in mind. This poem actually started out because I felt people were treating me as the invisible, non-existant man (in the real world, not online), it then went on to a rant about how my emotions work.
