Seashell on the ground

Seashell on the ground

A Poem by Najam Us Saher
"

Like a seashell on the ground.

"
SEASHELL ON THE GROUND 
Like a seashell I remain on the ground,
Some notice and pick the best ones,
While some are left around.
I feel I am the left one which no one cares about,
I have been picked once,
But thrown back to the ground.
I feel I am the worst surrounded by the best,
Like a seashell which is lying on the beach,
I feel so alone untouched and beyond one's reach.
I still feel lonely when I have everyone around,
I am diving deep in my agony,
I am waiting to be found.
Care for me before I am buried in the ground,
Otherwise I would be merely lying,
Like a seashell on the ground.

Really like the comparison here. The piece has much more depth than it seems. But yes, one should never let others belittle or just discourage oneself. You are a unique soul and need no one's confirmation. Wonderfully written.
I had a bag full of seashells that i collected on a beach when i was around 7 or 8. Dont know where it is now, but I'll look for it :)

People always discard or bypass the most obvious treasures.
It is very sad isn't it, that they have lost that sight?

Very relatable, Najam, with a lovely analogy.

Quite often we find that our loneliness is at its zenith when we are amongst a crowd. For in such moments the depth of that loneliness is pushed straight into the spotlight. Loneliness is not always found in solitude. For the humble seashell, its unique beauty will always get it noticed. Even amongst a shore of seashells.

A nice write. Well written.
