The Irrelevants

A long time ago
we learnt great things
over the fire of discussion
we shared great things

Sent back to our villages
we tried to share the incredible beauty
I was shushed.
She was shut up.

The cart needs to be held up
or the weak will fall over
Beauty is hard
for the Beholders’ change

The bitterest sadness
has been that the village elders
saw the beauty too
in all it’s scariness

and we can’t share this
for we are the irrelevants
whose wheels won’t hit the road
because we want everyone to fly
