A Poem by Litheos Ennius Taruc

To people who consider me different, here is my response...

I am one of the Loners.
The Explorers.
The Hermits.
Call me whatever you see fit.

I feel alone in my endeavors,
not because I shun the world
and its achievements and mistakes,
but because I believe
that I feel things more differently
than what you can normally comprehend.

I am not content
of what I see people as "sources of enjoyment".
But I do not feel myself a higher form of human.
As a matter of fact,
I see myself even lower,
more primal even.

I am fascinated by humanity's interests,
how simple people live out their lives.
Oh how I yearn to become
at least a mere fraction of who they are!

But I chose not to.
I chose not to become like them
simply because I chose to be Myself.
And even though my thoughts are different,
that my interests, fears, and sources of joy
are different from what you would consider "normal",
always remember
that it is not I who are looking down at you,
but I being fascinated
at how high you have already become.
