Stranger - Poem by prabhakar bhatlekar

Forgive me friends.
I missed my direction,
took a wrong path
and reached here.
I'm aware, am a misfit here.
You all good fellas were
nice to me. Never despised
a boor like me.
Overlooked my odd habits,
my clowny face.
Enjoyed my crazy songs,
faltering dance and
strange language.
But, now I must leave.
I'm suffocating...
- sorry, I overheard
your plans to change me.
Civilise me...
all for my good.
But I'm frightened!
I respect your love and
concern fellas.
Please don't waste your
energy on a unchangeable
like me. Leave me as I'm.
Bid hearty goodbye.
