the lone wolf's story, in a world where wolves were exterminated,
or an ordinary immigrant's story

202. Language Alien - for Saga's challenge

Sorry, I don't belong to you.
You are a different kind of aliens
whose language I don't speak,
whose laws I don't accept
and whose mentality is alien to freedom
since you don't accept alternative mentalities
of freedom, feelings, softness, sensitivity
and that capacity to feel life by antennae
vibrating in alien dimensions
and accepting other languages
than just the physical and spoken ones.
So I must be an alien to you,
preserve my oversensitive integrity
behind an oyster's shell of shyness,
and if my work doesn't please
or can't be understandable to you,
so let me then at least continue working
as an alien without you.

Reading this text was for me an adventure. Same title as mine, but the expression is so much yours!
And though you and I surely are very different, we both share the alienness.
