this jar
inside this jar
quiet and
my quiet self
detached from
the lousy world

there is a
reason for this
when i cannot
find myself
in the middle
ofย  the crowd
i am in my
private jar

this jar
it is not
since i am
myself a loud
noise trying
to sound calmer
and this is only

    Sometimes I feel like this. Another great poem!

  2. Chester, I feel you tonight, dear friend.
    I feel alone….in MY jar.
    Yet I scream out for attention.
    No one hears.
    Damn, soundproof jars. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

    I really like this poem! It speaks for introverts. Introverts may be quiet but they have a lot going on inside. Their jar is already filled. Thanks for giving a voice to those who are not always seen as normal.

    Im stunned by the beautiful scatter of words and unusual “rhyming”. Well done, my friend!
