Photo Challenge #219 – Shunned

He struggled with his and the world’s perception of him.

He had little to no personality,

Once he was told, a cow pat had more.

He buried himself away even though he craved company.

Weighed down by doubt, and life experience,

He suffered from social interaction,

He became accustomed to conversation going nowhere

In the middle of a sentence, his ‘listener’ would turn away

Excuse themselves and move on,

He was ignored, he was isolated,

You’d think he’d learn

But no, he faced up to humiliation once again

Tried to interact, thought he made an effort

But he accepted being shunned.
