A sonnet as solace for all those who identify as misfits and loners in the assemblies of life.

For All the Misfits and Loners in Life Who Turn to God for Comfort

“Where was God,” you ask, “when I needed Him?
When I felt cast out and all alone? Spurn'd
by my peers for being poor!? All I learn'd,”
you lament, “is that here people condemn
you for just being different, too. To them,”
you add with rage, “I'm a threat to be burn'd,—
a rival to be attacked and overturn'd!”
“So it was, too, for One born in Bethlehem,
My Child,” a Voice comforts. “He was alone
as a child, as well—and very unique.
But like Him, the last shall be first (in death);
and the first (in life) shall be last. For none
who are My Children shall be mocked—so speak
I and command!” swore Him with solemn breath.
