The People I Don'T Wish To Meet - Poem by Francis Duggan

I see them one might say too often they either stare at me or ignore me as I walk down the street
In their eyes I must seem unfriendly the people I don't wish to meet
I've never harmed them or their children and they only know me by sight
But in their eyes I do seem a strange one and something about me not right.

To everyone I am a stranger and everyone is a stranger to me
And everytime I look in the mirror 'tis not my own real self I see
It worries me that my own true self I cannot see with my own eyes
To myself I do seem a stranger am I someone else in disguise?

One well may conclude I'm talking nonsense since there's little sense in what I say
The truth seldom comes to the surface the truth is well hidden away
Am I that much different to others do others see things differently?
Suppose all of us complex individuals are mirrors of humanity.

I meet them whilst walking in the Town and we pass by without saying hello
The people I would rather not meet since me they do not wish to know
They either stare at me without bothering to speak or me they do choose to ignore
A stranger in a World of strangers one might say we've heard that before.
