The Weakest

The runt of the litter
he was called,

the weakest
who didn’t count at all.

Looked down upon
and regarded as lazy.

In later years
they thought a little crazy.

They never knew
what he was happening inside

or that he had
been swallowed by a tide

that washed over him
until he couldn’t breathe

to leave him on his knees
just to seethe

with anger and frustration
towards them.

Whoever said they had
the right to condemn.
