Poem - Rejected by Others

 


 Rejected by Others

For in life my sisters and brothers
As to my being they denied
Because I was rejected by others 

Judged so harshly by all the mothers
That I just wanted to run and hide
From life and my sisters and brothers

A mustard seed that was grandmothers
Given me became a light and guide  
Because I was rejected by others

A treasure in disguise became my hope 
Placed around my neck as a child
I grew in hope in life to cope

For big and firm the seed beguiled
But I lost it in life due the rejection
Then my hope returned as I smiled

Christians friended me and gave affection
Became in life my brothers and sisters
Helping me see my true reflection
Because I was rejected by others
