Body of Message:

A sigh
I tried
They do not see.
Words my talent,
They do not care.
A gift I have,
But they don't know,
The depth
The treasures
They have no interest.
For years I wrote,
Made my heart bleed.
To touch them,
To show them,
A way to my thoughts.
One poem I left,
Before my death,
One poem,
It started,
"Family dearest, read this."
Same as before,
I'll never hear,
The verdict the choice,
It renders to their ears.
So my talent wasted,
Once again looked over.
Lost I am to the purpose,
Of finding families acceptance,
Talent wasted and washed away,
Failed against their dissapproval.
What purpose have I now?

I understand the feelings you are trying to convey. The feeling of isolation can be haunted with feelings of futility.

I hope that this is more of a catalyst for you than a dead-end. It is a necessary experience, but not all can accept it and move on. I'm interested to see the poem that you wrote right after this one.
