Failed Offspring


I don’t belong in this family it seems,
Stranger in front of stranger
No connection except that distant grey umbilical cord
Snapping in half, the pain echoes loudly
Feeling like a failure
Amongst non-Christians

Somehow I withdraw into the safety of my cocoon
Away from the hurt, I fall into the thick folds of
Flowing velvet wrapping me safe
I wonder what did I do wrong?
That I can’t connect
With time a growing distance expands

A disappointment somehow to my own
How do I overcome this feeling of:
Rejection? Abandonment? Failure
That wraps itself around my soul
I cry brokenly

It feels..
It seems..
I am a failed Offspring

A failed Offspring
An Offspring gone astray
