Ignored - Poem by Khairul Ahsan

When my questions fall flat,
I feel ignored.
When those are swept under the carpet,
I feel ignored.
When words disappear even to acknowledge,
I feel ignored.
You know I have so many reasons to feel ignored.
And when I feel ignored, I feel frustratingly forlorn.
And that turns into anger,
And makes me take a resolute vow never to return.

    In many ways I feel EXACLY the same way, it seems there are days, that whatever I do whatever I say, nothing comes out which others here or they just ignore, this leads to constant frustration that just builds and builds and builds until... well the reason I write is because I don't have to deal with Until. All I can say Khairul is that you are not alone, I and others feel exactly the same way. Bang on the subject matter, this poem really touched my heart, thank you for sharing. (Report) Reply

    Very honest and very human reaction to being ignored. As writers many of us suffer this treatment yet we still write because the art and passion for writing is within us, and that cannot be ignored. A lovely, inspiring write, enjoyed reading it. (Report) Reply

    When we feel being ignored, it is pain. This pain leads to resentment and anger... A very natural reaction.... We would like to return only to a place where we are wanted. But make sure if it is just an imagined feeling or if it is real...!

    A great write unravelling basic human nature! In few lines you have managed to convey it effectively!

    Ignorance is so common these days and sadly seems to be accepted. Which is so, so, wrong. Can you imagine how bad it will be in the future. Great write and do not let this stop you from smiling. Many Thanks (Report) Reply

    At times we feel the way you stated in your beautiful poem. When one is ignored that is when one must rise with a resolve. Let no one go into a feeling of frustratingly forlorn. Rise up and make every effort to find answers. Thank you. (Report) Reply
