The Outsider by Tony Sargeant

Standard

The Outsider

Always separated by longing to belong

from belonging itself.

Always seeking comfort in companionship,

Yet, by seeking,

blocking that internal path

that ought to lead thereto.

Always seeking,

thus never arriving.

Endlessly travelling

but never reaching

the longed for terminus

Wherein others seem to have dwelt all their lives,

or so it seems to the Outsider.

Always a long way off,

like the refrain of the Wandering Jew,

“Next year in Jerusalem”

“Next year”.

Anthony J Sargeant – 6th February 2016
