On the outside

On the outside

A Poem by Abdul Batin Osman Bey
"

about how I feel most of the time

"
Even after all these years
many are they that passed by
I still feel as if
I don't belong
not at this time
not at this place

i have a hard time relating
to the people
that are suppose to be
my comrades
when i read history
far and distant
that's where i see myself
in a past now long gone

the morals of today 
i don't share
the media hype
latest fashions, trends, and whatever
disgust me

i am out of time
out of place
i long for an era 
that has all but faded to dust

or
maybe
I'm just a freak
unable to connect
with the digital
static age
not because of anything
but my own inabilities
