Inhuman - Poem by Suraj Samtani

I'm sorry.

I don't know how to live among you.

I have never been taught before I came, &

I was never first taught whence I arrived.

I learnt my lessons through punishments, &

I maintained those acts which were rewarded.

I have no sense of my own, &

I don't know how to live among you.

I am barbaric & archaic by nature, &

I've just been trained to live socially.

As a result, my entire self worth is dependent on your acceptance of me.

As a result, my life's purpose is to always strive for your happiness.

My reputation is derived from you, &

My hollow life is driven by you.

I thank you for all that you've given & done for me.

For without you I'd be inhuman.
