Too Bad, So Sad - Poem by Maja Dezulovic

Too bad, so sad
That’s what they’ll say
When you pour out your heart
When you reach out and cry
‘I need you humankind, I need you’

They’ve been programmed, you see
To look out for themselves and the small circles around them
If you aren’t in that circle
If you don’t stand on common ground –
Too bad, so sad.

And then you cry,
Run down the street searching
For someone’s eyes, anybody’s eyes – alive
Looking, listening and feeling
And maybe those eyes will look at you,
Actually see you
Without dismissively looking away
And chanting
‘Too bad, so sad…’
