No Value

I know they are looking at me

and wondering what I am doing here,

that I don’t belong,

and it would be better if I disappear.

No one has said it,

but I believe it to be true

for in my own mind

I know I am not of any value.

I know they are not listening to me

and wish I would leave,

that I am exactly

what they all perceive.

Someone who wasted

all the chances he was given

and now has returned

in the hope of being forgiven.
