Absolute Rejection


Do not come knocking on my door
When aggrieved, craving to be relieved.
For you, neither have I lived nor relived.

Do not dare to imagine imaginings of me
When you are alone in a desert of forlorn,
I exist not in thoughts or in desperate doubts.

Even when you grope and grasp your last breath
Searching above the sky and wishing you could fly,
Do not invoke my name, I am not your dying game.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

I celebrated my graduation with friends, and I had a chance to give a speech. Once again I used my poetry skills to advice my friends about the struggle involved in the course of trying to achieve something in life. Whatever the struggle is we all face rejection at some point in our life, that moment when the world turns against you and everything you try doesn't work out and the people you trust seem to let you down.
