    An Unspoken Origin

    There was once a little boy,
    all play, no work, his life a mere toy
    and when he went to school
    he thought he was a fool
    such a dumb little boy
    who broke his little toys
    so this little boy went to elementary
    and all those little eyes brought along anxiety
    This little boy, 'what a fool' he often thought
    always dreaming and thinkig something he's not
    and pity they did for him, quiet and prudent
    so pity they had for this disciplined student.
    Oh for goodness sake
    they've made a mistake
    by ignoring the problem in his psyche
    they've kept him in this shell of anxiety
    with invisible chains and a door left open
    he won't escape with his heart disheartened.
    They taught him East, Southeast, and Western language
    but of all these tongues he learned only English
    'oh what a waste' how his parents forgot
    what a fool, what a fool he'd often thought,
    all those years of teaching taught to this little boy
    they laughed, they shrugged, they thought he played coy,
    believing his act prolonged to be fake
    oh what mistake, what many mistakes.
    So this little boy now at junior high
    is sulky and stubborn and won't comply
    but then the weeks saw the months counting years
    and he saw by then and outgrew his fears
    and they had noticed his stony face
    began to peel from introverted ways
    What a surprise, they thought him an android robot
    until the day he laughed and spoke, a fool once thought.
    Now this little boy finds himself at senior high
    those mistakes of his and theirs he cannot deny
    and so he awaits for what bitter days
    and those happy ones, this world he embraced.
