Unveiling layers beneath a rose

P.C :- Reena’s Exploration Challenge

Am I a lone wolf amongst confused souls?

Or,

Am I a black sheep amongst saints?

Am I what Sun is to Earth?

Or,

Am I one amongst the countless stars?

My face lacks identity,

My name has no meaning,

My familiarity doesn’t come from within,

I am just a worker bee,

I am just a misfit piece of a big puzzle,

I am just a common man,

Nothing fancy,

I am just a worker bee,

I am just a misfit piece of a big puzzle,

I am just a common man,

Prone to confusion,

Prone to self-doubt,

Prone to mistakes,

Nothing fancy,

I am just a worker bee,

I am just a misfit piece of a big puzzle,

I am just a common man.

      1. There would be no rulers and no puzzles without the common man. I would treat ‘not finding the right fit’ and ‘misfit’ as two different things 😊

        Not being valued by others does not mean there is no inherent value.

  1. May I pitch in to say that like the bees that we desperately need for the jobs they do β€” like them, we’re all frontline workers for Mother Earth. May we never fall asleep on the job.
    Lovely. Powerful. Thanks for sharing.

    1. It’s interesting to know that ‘not finding the right fit’ and misfit are two different things. And I absolutely agree that not being valued doesn’t mean there isn’t any value. Thank you, Ma’am. πŸ™‚
